Love this zoo. My wife and I always have a good time going here. You really do get up close to a lot of animals. It's a lot smaller than a lot of zoos, but it's actually kind of nice. It's a different experience, and I highly recommend it. It's an awesome place to bring children, and even though we don't have our own (we have gone with my nephews though), my wife and I love to see how much fun the kids are having.

The exhibits are pretty neat but some could be updated and more robust. Prices are reasonable for the area, and it's location is pretty good as well. The nature here is awesome, especially with all of the plants that grow throughout. Unfortunately, some of the older walkways are quite narrow, and there's even a section that is only large enough for a single file line to advance through. I'd definitely recommend a visit, but overall, I'd like to see nicer attractions put into place.

Our favorite near by zoo. My kids prefer this one over Cleveland hands down. So much cleaner and employees are typically much nicer and more helpful. Yes it is somewhat smaller but that's actually better when you are trying to keep track of a bunch of kids. Better play areas for kids. My kids love being able get closer to the animals and I much prefer the parking lot at this one. Worth the $3.

One of Akron’s hidden treasures. A fun local zoo with a nice selection of animals. It’s also nice to be able to get closer than most other zoos. The zoo is clean and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. It’s also nice they don’t gouge you on prices, my many other zoos. It’s easy to get around the zoo without getting run over by a stroller. If you’re a local, consider getting a membership, my wife routinely takes the kids just to get out of the house and walk around. They also have many events.

A great zoo, especially for kids. You can view many animals up close. The slide through the otter exhibit and pool is so fun! The animals have very nice habitats for the most part. There are so many fun play areas. We really love this zoo!
