The Cleveland Metropark Zoo has a new tiger exhibit and it's really phenomenal. I also recommend the giraffe exhibit - you can feed them. Great place for a date, families and children.

This is a large Zoo in area. It is arranged in a sort of "V" plan meaning it is a long walk or double shuttle ride to see both parts. The Elephant display if excellent and the new tiger exhibit is creative. but there were very bore and sad looking lowland gorillas and pacing bears looking very stressed.

We usually get a season pass every year. It's nice on a rainy day too, because you can escape to the rain forest or primate exhibit at the back of the zoo.

I've been spoiled by the Smithsonian National Zoo's free prices and always feel sticker-shocked when I see other zoo prices. When I realized I could bring 3 little ones and myself in AND park for under $50, I was shocked. Things I loved: - The zookeepers! Without asking for help, 3 different people offered us advice on various animal viewings... More

how fortunate Clevelanders are to have this treasure! The zoo has been around for over 75 years, but the Cleveland Metroparks keeps updating with new and better attractions. Make sure you see the Elephant Crossing, and the carrosal

Great variety of animals. Cool giraffe experience - can feed them so they come really close to people. Seems to have fun activities for kids.Buying tickets online saves time and money.

Wonderful variety of animals to view. Lots of ground to cover and only open from 10 to 5, so we didn't see everything and rushed through some exhibits. Very friendly docents. Several food vendors available at typical high prices. Be sure to check out the rain forest too. If you plan to visit this zoo more than once, get the... More

Cleveland has a very nice zoo with a wide range of animals on display in good habitats. The zoo is well laid out to minimize walking between exhibits. Nice for a days stroll or to sit and watch animals for hours. The zoo has good amenities position throughout to keep visitors refreshed. Least crowded during the afternoon Monday through Friday.

If you are looking for a fun way to spend the day outside walking around...you are never too old for the zoo...and this is a great one! The Rainforest is awesome! The elephant, bear, and giraffe exhibits are also favorites of ours! The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is always working to update and/or expand exhibits to keep things "new" and inviting... More
