Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is a true year-round experience - visit us this winter and see why!
When the snow starts to fall and the kids are getting restless from being cooped up inside, the Zoo makes visiting during the winter months easy by reducing admission prices and providing complimentary heated transportation. From November 1 to March 31, 2014, admission is just $8.25 for adults, $5.25 for kids ages 2-11, and as always, children younger than 2 are free.
Take a brisk stroll through the Zoo's Northern Trek area to see the bears, tigers, sea lions and wolves, many of whom are more active in the cooler weather. Then stop in the lodge at Wolf Wilderness and warm up by the fire.
Next, head to the Primate, Cat & Aquatics Building via the heated tram and visit the gorillas, snow leopards and sharks. The African elephants, naked mole rats and African rock python are waiting inside the Elephant Care & Visitor Center. At the Sarah Allison Steffee Center for Zoological Medicine, guests can learn about the state-of-the-art care the Zoo's animals receive and maybe even see a medical procedure, as it happens, through the viewing windows.
Drop by GumLeaf Hideout and say �g'day� to the koalas and tree kangaroo in their indoor exhibit, and cap off your visit with a tropical tour through The RainForest, where it's always 80 degrees, to see the orangutans and otters.
Northeast Ohio's most-visited year-round attraction, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
