This is a nice little zoo. Well kept with some interesting exhibits. It is not a destination zoo like Columbus or Cleveland, but if you’re in the area and have a few hours it’s worth a visit.

Love this zoo! It big enough to be worth the trip but not so big that you wear yourself out trying to see everything. Always upgrading with the welfare of the animals in mind. Highly recommended.

I visited the Akron Zoo while back home, after being away for 23 years due to military service, and the remodeled version of the zoo is by far more enjoyable. It’s definitely more cleaner than earlier. Great place for family time.

The Akron Zoo is much improved from when I was a kid in the 1960's and the big attraction seemed to be a tortoise. It has something for little kids and teens both and is clean and well kept. If you haven't been for awhile,...More
