Grew up less than a mile from the Cleveland Metropark Zoo, beautiful hidden gem... don't be put off by some of the surroundings. We often give a membership to new parents as a gift (Christmas, Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc.) Great for families!

Beautiful Zo, and very clean. The animals were taken care of, and the exhibits were very educational. The shops have great gifts and the animals were very active.

When I was marathon training, we'd come to the zoo and run up the hill to the Monkeys, Fish and Cheetahs and go down the back way to repeat the exercise eight more times. So, I saw quite a lot of the zoo. As I...More

This zoo has a lot to offer. It really is worth several trips there to see everything. One might not expect to see such exotic creatures in the middle of Cleveland, but it contains more variety that most zoos that I have been to. The...More

We get family passes each year. There are plenty of great activities for kids. The zoo is spread out with some hills, so there is a lot of walking, especially for small children. They could use more places to sit. There are many food and...More

The price for an all inclusive ticket is $23.50. This includes admission to the zoo AND rainforest, rides on the train in the Australian exhibit, the 4-D movies and a zoo key with a lanyard. Hope this helps.

It doesn't go all the way around the zoo, but it does take to you to the cats & primates. There is an extra charge for the train. When I went no one checked our tickets.
