Bear Hollow Zoo is home to a variety of non-releasable wildlife residents. These animals have encountered a challenge that they could not overcome, either physical or behavioral, and have been placed here to live out their lives serving as ambassadors for their species. They are here to educate our visitors about the wonderful wildlife with which we share space.
Bear Hollow Zoo and Memorial Park are facilities of the ACC Leisure Services Department. Memorial Park is open from 8 AM to sunset on weekdays and 9 AM to sunset on weekends and holidays. Bear Hollow Zoo is open from 9 AM to 5 PM daily.
Bear Hollow Zoo is a popular place for families to come and see Georgia’s native wildlife. Saturdays (and some Sundays) from 1 PM to 4 PM, the Reptile House (located in the center of the zoo) is open to the public, featuring reptile and amphibian exhibits.
