Welcome to Nature's Playground

Due to COVID-19, the Park and Zoo are closed until further notice. We will update as soon as we know more from local, state, and federal officials. Thanks for understanding.

With over 700 acres of pristine, conservation land and a zoo dedicated to education, Chehaw is a unique attraction for South Georgia. Chehaw continues to be devoted to the three areas it was founded on: conservation, preservation and education. From the Zoo to the endless recreational opportunities, Chehaw has an activity for every visitor. Come see what nature’s playground has to offer you.Merkats at Chehaw Zoon in Albany GA
