This message is for anyone who lives near here or is visiting Knoxville. Our zoo is wonderful. In the past few years, the Knoxville Zoo has improved greatly and is a great place to visit for both kids and adults. This zoo is devoted to education, conservation, and research. We are very lucky to have this place in our backyards. Scott and I visited over the weekend. The zoo's three new female chimpanzees were very curious about the visitors.
