Residents of Lake, Lorain, Summit, Portage, Geauga and Medina counties can save money while enjoying Cleveland Metroparks Zoo through the Zoo's "Wild Wednesdays" promotion. Residents of those counties receive half-price admission on designated "Wild Wednesdays" this summer.
The special discount applies to residents of surrounding counties as follows:
- July 7 - Lake County Day
- July 14 - Lorain County Day
- July 21 - Summit County Day
- July 28 - Portage County Day
- August 4 - Geauga County Day
- August 11 - Medina County Day
On Wild Wednesdays, Zoo admission for qualifying residents is half-price all day, with admission to The RainForest just $5 per person. Out-of-county residents should bring a valid photo ID (with current address) to the Zoo Box Office on the specified day, or bring a current utility bill with another form of identification.
Residents of Cuyahoga County and Hinckley Township, who support the Zoo through their property taxes, receive free Zoo admission on Mondays year-round.
"Affordable access for everyone is key to the Zoo's mission," said Sue Allen, Manager of Marketing & Public Relations for the Zoo. "Our regular admission is already very reasonable, but we still want to give people a break when we can."
Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily with hours extended to 7 p.m. on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays through Labor Day. Admission is $10 per person, $7 for kids ages 2 to 11 and free for children under 2 and Zoo members. Parking is free. Located at 3900 Wildlife Way, the Zoo is easily accessible from Interstates 71, 77, 90 and 480.
