This zoo had a lot of great animals. It felt a little old-fashioned in the sense that so many animals seemed to be in small areas/cages that didn't look particularly clean. It also felt like the main areas were very far apart from each other. We have a small zoo near our house that is much more modern and clean... More

The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is perfect for all ages. The Rainforest itself is a great destination, as well as the newer exhibits. I love how the place is kept up - especially the landscaping. don't miss it!

This zoo was awesome. It was big enough to feel like we were seeing a lot, but not too big for the little ones.

Went with wife and baby. Very well done and laid out zoo with varied selection of animals. Take the little shuttle to the top and walk down. Good info describing the animals. Worth the trip. Not too small or too large. Can do in about three hours.

This zoo is fantastic..and huge! We had about 4.5 hours here and it wasn't nearly enough. There's a whole side of the zoo we didn't get to see. What we did though... is fantastic.

Great for kids young and old. The animals seem really close up and pretty well cared for. Our grandaughter is a regular visitor and loves the place

Went to the zoo with my parents the other day, and even though we are all adults we had a great time. The exhibits are great. There is a lot of walking to do which is a great workout (they do have some trams). The new elephant crossing is really cool.
