This is a fabulous place to visit - just walk around and watch the animals...the lions, the tigers are sunning outside while the elephant house is filled with fun loving big girls and boys.

This zoo is very well maintained even in winter. Alot of ground to cover to see all the exhibits as this zoo is large. Even in winter the animals are presented in indoor viewing areas.

It was very deserted, more fun for us! We didn't get to see many animals, but with the discounted winter rate that was to be expected. The kids still loved it. Cleveland Zoo is always a blast!

They have made some great improvements at the zoo. They have opened up the areas so the animals have more room to roam.
