I love the Cleveland Metropark Zoo! The Elephant Crossing exhibit was a wonderful addition & very fun to watch. Family friendly! The rainforest is my favorite!

The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is a great place to spend a day at anytime of the year. Summer is always a popular season, but the indoor areas allow for winter visits to be comfortable as well. Great variety of animals and attractions. The Rainforest is a must-see as well as the elephant exhibit.

The zoo was amazing! We spent three hours there and still didn't get to see everything. They have military discounts and amazing zookeepers.

Awesome zoo. Took my 7 year old and 5 year old and spent 5 hours. Feeding the giraffes was a high point as was seeing all of the elephants.
