Cleveland Metroparks Zoo brings the wildly popular 'Wild Wednesdays' promotion back this summer. Starting July 6, residents from neighboring Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage and Summit counties can enjoy the Zoo for half-price on designated summer Wednesdays.
The special discount applies to residents of surrounding counties as follows:
- July 6: Geauga County Day
- July 13: Lake County Day
- July 20: Lorain County Day
- July 27: Medina County Day
- August 3: Portage County Day
- August 10: Summit County Day
On Wild Wednesdays, Zoo admission for qualifying residents is half-price all day ($5.50 for adults, $4 for kids ages 2 to 11) and includes admission to The RainForest and the new African Elephant Crossing exhibit. Out-of-county residents should bring a valid photo ID (with current address) to the Zoo Box Office on the specified day, or a current utility bill with another form of identification.
Residents of Cuyahoga County and Hinckley Township, who support Cleveland Metroparks and the Zoo through their property taxes, receive free Zoo admission on Mondays year-round.
"With the state of the economy, everyone is looking for affordable fun that's family friendly and close to home," said Sue Allen, Manager of Marketing & Public Relations for the Zoo. "While our regular admission is already very reasonable, this promotion gives our neighbors a little extra incentive to come and spend the day making memories with their family at the Zoo."
Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily with hours extended to 7 p.m. on weekends and holidays from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Admission is $11 per person, $8 for kids ages 2 to 11 and free for children younger than 2 and Zoo members. Parking is free. Located at 3900 Wildlife Way, the Zoo is easily accessible from Interstates 71, 90 and 480.
