Category: Tourist Attraction


This 200-acre site lies only a few miles from downtown Nashville and is open year-round. The construction project included two new animal exhibits and vastly upgraded existing habitats. The new habitats include a large Andean Bears exhibit, with a Peruvian lodge in a hillside landscape where Andean bears and a few other species live; an elevated walkway through the woods with a tree-top view of Spider Monkeys; and the repurposed elephant habitat that now houses a herd of White Rhinoceros

Products Used:

PENETRON ADMIX was used to provide an integrated waterproofing solution for all water-related habitat areas that feature waterfalls, pools, and foundation structures for the viewing areas. Specifically, PENETRON ADMIX SB was added to all concrete used in the foundation wall of the Andean Bears viewing building (with the glass window half-submerged underwater) and in the shotcrete work for the waterfalls and pools in all the new habitats.
