I have always loved the zoo from when my children were little back in the 90s - There something about the atmosphere of the animals (even though they are not in the wild, they are wild animals), I've been a member of the Zoo for years, which gives you free admission after a yearly fee. You can go to the... More

The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is a gem for the Cleveland Area. Lots of exhibits. I really like the elephants area, the wolves and the lions. Bring your walking shoes as some are up a steep hill (there is a tram). The Rain Forest is also really awesome. A great afternoon activity in good weather.

I visit the zoo two or three times a summer with my family since my kids were small. Very nice attractions inside and out. A great trip for the whole family. Also go see the rainforest while you are there.

You'll love bringing your family to this zoo. If the weather is cold they have an indoor rain forest , if it is warm you'll have lots of areas to walk around and visit. If you are in Cleveland this is an attraction you should not miss. It's a great place for kids.

My family loves the zoo and we have been members for years. They do a great job with the Meet the Keeper program and the other enrichment activities.

Cleveland zoo is nice. The tram helps get people around which is nice since the zoo is spread out. The rainforest is pretty cool. They removed the butterfly conservatory which was very depressing. I just wish they had the extras that other zoos do like feeding animals.

Just a great way to be with the family, exercise and see the animals in somewhat of a natural habitat. Great scenery, love the Kangaroos and Kuala bears. Mother giraffes with new baby giraffes were such a delight!

With the Rainforest, the new Elephant exhibit and the awesome grizzlies. What's not to like. I've been a member and taking my kids since they were very small. Great place to spend a few hours or a whole day. Whatever time allows. Bring a picnic! Great places to stop and eat throughout the park.
