“Wonderful Time”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Such a wonderful place to go. Many animals to see and the zoo is very spread out. They offer a tram service to go and see the cats and gorillas, which is fun and they give you a little history of the zoo on the ride.

“Amazing - Friendly - Zoo”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

I take my grand childrrent frequently to the zoo. We are pass holders and go often. The zoo is easy to navigate and really easy for my todlers to see over fencing and exhibits. I have taken them to so called "Kid Friendly" zoos, but some how most zoos forgtet that most of the little one's are less then 3 feet tall. Cleveland Exhibits are usually very kid friendly. THe new elephant exhibt is so real that you almost can sense that the animals feel they are home and not in Cleveland. The workers at the zoo are friendly and will gladly answer questions about animals, directions or what ever crazy question a 4 year old can throw at them. We are lucky to have such a quality zoo right here in Cleveland. Oh there is also the Rainforest! Very cool! Hey just go see for yourself!!!

“Great place for kids!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

My daughter enjoys bringing her little ones to the zoo many times in the summer. It is a great place to let them see nature and the elephant exhibit is most impressive!
