They brought back zoo keys!!!!! A little magical key shaped like an elephant that instantly provides information about the animal exhibit you are viewing. So many different animals that all look healthy and well cared for. The zoo seems very committed to conservancy. Great time and had fun spending the day with my son. Kids will love it!

We have visited many zoos throughout the years and know from experience that the Cleveland Zoo is one of the best.

Outstanding exhibits including the rain forest building. A great experience viewing wildlife within their natural environments. Loved seeing the elephants, giraffes, kangaroos, birds, seals, tigers, rhinos, koalas, bears, monkeys and wolves. Lots of picnic areas. Trams available. The aquatic exhibit is super too. Overall, a very impressive and well maintained zoo.

The exhibits were laid out well. There is a lot of walking, but the setting was great. We fed the giraffes, which was a neat experience. The animals were out and about, and I was able to get some great pictures. The staff is friendly and helpful. Don't miss the tigers, feeding the giraffes, or the primate exhibit. If we... More

Pretty large zoo. Lots of walking, but you can ride a tram/trolley to areas that are a distance away. Many different exhibits to see. The rainforest is cool. My family has been coming here for 30 plus years. A great place day for young and old.

The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo just seems to get better and better. We are family members, and love going for a short or long day frequently with the kids. There's a great new carousel and little-kid play area nearby it - our kids will spend hours there if we let them. I love how they keep seeming to add new things... More

Beautiful Spring day. The dingos, wolves, tigers, bears, lions, and friendly staff were out today. Fed the giraffes and road the tram. The elephants were outside near the fence! The volunteer staff was awesome when asked questions. Great time.

I haven't been to the zoo in probably 20 years. We had a fantastic time. Loved how everything was spaced out and easy to find.
