Our Zoo is beautiful, up to date, and a fun place to go any day of the week. I especially like the elephant walk.

If you are resident of Cuyahoga County, you can enter the zoo for FREE on Mondays! We go every year and have a blast! Although, it would be nice to see some newer things, or at least things changed up a bit, I mean there's only so many times you can watch a camel or monkeys swinging from branch to... More

The Cleveland Zoo is a great place to go on a date or with the entire family. There is always something new going on and a great place to learn about things you never knew.

They have done and are continuing to do a lot of updates. It is a nice zoo. Mondays are more crowded because it is free for Cuyahoga county residents. Tip: if it is really hot or cold out take the team up the hill to the primate house

The Cleveland Metroparks are something that I appreciate even more after moving out of Cleveland. From biking, hiking, fishing, and golfing, the Metroparks offer everything in so many locations.

Great little zoo. Very neat Rain Forrest exhibit. Great monkey and aquarium area too. We went in the winter so some animals were off exhibit.
