History
On May 1, 1970, the creation of a zoological corner at the base of the youth station was officially approved. As for other zoos in Ukraine, the Cherkasy Zoo is considered one of the smallest. The area of ​​the zoo is 4.37 hectares. The reconstruction of the zoo in 2008 involved the construction of an eco-style building: lots of wood, natural stone, roofs with earth and grass. The aviaries take into account all the whims of animals: the fence materials selected for "combing" of the animals in the aviary, reservoirs, warm and cool places.
 
Changing the concept
In December 2007, the new director changed the concept of the zoo's development program based on the peculiarities of the Cherkasy Zoo. The zoo began to abandon the collection of large animals and build collections of small animals. By 2020, the zoo has 250 species and 3000 specimens of animals, 2 \ 3 of which are animals of the terrarium group: reptiles, amphibians, amphibians, which together with the collection of poisonous animals are a feature of the zoo. The zoo has the largest collection of terrarium animals in Ukraine. It is also the only zoo in Ukraine that uses sponsor funds - Roshen Corporation. With his support, a new complex “Land of bears and wolves” (UAH 25 million) was built and the greenhouse heating system was redesigned. An exhibition of "Angkor Wat - the Wonderful World of the Tropics" was opened with a collection of animals and plants.

In September 2019, with the help of an investor, an exposure for ungulates - Deer and Bison - was opened. The exposition consists of 4 aviaries, which are located on 4,5 hectares. Its uniqueness in the effect of immersion in the world of animals, because you can look at the front of the exposition, as well as go inside on the bridge 230 meters long. It is the largest outdoor exposition in Ukraine. Exposure to this format requires increased responsibility from visitors because there is no fence between the animals and the visitor.
