Knoxville Zoo Clayton Safari Splash & Zoo Ticket Giveaway!

To celebrate the official first day of summer  and the opening of the Knoxville Zoo Clayton Safari Splash Pad here is  a super fun giveaway!

Our family loves the Knoxville Zoo, we have been members for several years now and with 4 boys it one of our favorite ways to spend a day! Last week we finally made it out to the new Clayton Safari Splash . At 5,000 square feet, it is the largest splash pad in Knoxville!

We put on our swim trunks, packed a lunch and headed to the Zoo! I liked that on the way you get to walk by the bears,penguins, zebras, meerkats, elephants, giraffes and more. While we were there mainly for the splash pad the boys got to see several animals too.

The first thing we all noticed were the two huge “Giraffes”.

Safari Splash has plenty of room for kids to play. My 4 and 6 year old loved running through the water hoops and shooting the water guns. I appreciated that while there were large water features, there were also smaller water features that were perfect for my toddler. I chose one of several benches to sit on and hold the baby.

Another well thought out feature is that Splash Safari is fenced in with only one exit. This makes keeping track of multiple children so much easier! It is located near the Safari Grill, which means it is right next door to a bathroom. (Another good idea when you are talking about kids!) It is sometimes hard to find something that all of my children enjoy at once, Safari Splash is definitely one solution to that problem. They all had a lot of fun!

Splash Safari is included free with your entrance to the Knoxville Zoo. It is a great way to cool down on a hot summer day and just one more fun reason to visit the Knoxville Zoo!

Located next to the zoo’s Grasslands Africa! area, this safari-themed splash pad includes play areas designed for all ages, from toddlers to teens, and also features a play area where the whole family can be part of the fun. Vertical components are also a key part of the design, with life-sized giraffes that spout water, water hoops and loops, team sprays that use cooperative play to send water several stories in the air and colorful giant flowers.

Currently, the zoo is open daily from 9:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Admission and ticket sales stop one-hour before the zoo closes. Next-day admission is free after 3:00 p.m. For more information, please call 865.637.5331 or visit

We are endlessly looking for fun things to do, but their parents are on a tight budget (as am i), so our adventures are usually based on what is free/cheap. I’d love to take them to the splash pad and zoo, they would LOVE it!
