I've lived in the Cleveland area my entire life (I'm 48). I have watched the Cleveland Zoo go through changes over the years and it keeps getting better! I made another visit not long ago and just love the elephant crossing they added. The wolf exhibit is still my favorite. The only thing I miss is the Zoo Lights they used to have during the Holiday Season.
Zoo has improved so much since the Metropark System took it over. Clean, affordable and very, very nice exhibits. A must see.

Fantastic way to spend a day with family and friends. Things for all ages. Some of the new ateas for the animals are great and you can feed some of them.

This year we decided to take our 4 year old grandson to the zoo. Problem was we happened to go on the FREE day by coincidence. Horrible! Crowded! Hot! We had to park in an overflow lot, battle crowds of people with coolers and take forever to gain entrance. Another major problem is that it is impossible to find any zoo staff to ask where anything in the park is located. It's a shame because we have a highly rated zoo, and it is understaffed. The only place we could enjoy was the dinosaur exhibit which was slightly shady and not crowded - probably because you had to pay for entrance to this! It is a little elementary, however. My 4 year old grandson asked if the dinosaurs were toys. What does that say? Not very realistic.
