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. The Rainforest exhibit is especially cool. You go inside a man-made rainforest. It's a can't miss thing. The Orangutan exhibit is also awesome. I've never been... More

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.

An excellent zoo, well-maintained and modern. The Rainforest exhibit is excellent, and ost of the enclosures are well-presented. Worth a visit.

Plan on spending the entire day as the zoo is quite large and has lots of things to do. There's lot of activities where you can feed the animals and that was a lot of fun for both my kids and us. We went on a Monday unaware that on this day it is free for residents and it was... More

we have been members of this zoo for many years and even though our daughter is a teen now, we still enjoy it. despite ever rising costs, they manage to keep adding new exhibits and attractions.

This is not the biggest or most expansive zoo that I've been to but it is definitely worth a trip if you live in the Cleveland area. The zoo is free on Mondays for residents of Cuyahoga County but it is busy on those days. I have visited the zoo in both the winter (Thanksgiving weekend) and during the summer.... More
