Metro Richmond Zoo

Visit the Metro Richmond Zoo in Chesterfield County, where you can encounter a variety of animals just minutes from Downtown Richmond.

Monkeys, zebras, giraffes, lions, tigers, rhinos, and camels are just some of the more than 1,500 animals residing here in spacious, naturalistic exhibits.

Visit our herd of giraffe up close, and let these gentle giants eat right out of your hand! Feed and pet many barnyard animals. Various hand raised antelope reside in the petting area. Learn about our African penguins at the 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily feedings. Join in our keeper question and answer sessions.

Take the Safari Sky Ride high above the zoo to see the animals from this scenic viewpoint! Carousel and other rides are also fun for the kids.
