Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and Rainforest Photo Hike/Leisure Hike

Don't miss this exciting metropolitan zoo best known for having the largest collection of primates in the United States and for its Rainforest exhibit, which features a thrilling simulated tropical rain storm.

We will meet outside of the rainforest, tour the rainforest and then explore the zoo. This is a leisure hike which means we will be stopping to take in the sights, take pictures and enjoy the day all the while walking at a relaxed pace. This is more of a sight seeing hike then a workout. This is a perfect event for beginning hikers, those with physical limitations and those that want to see the Zoo at a relaxed pace.

The cost of the zoo and rainforest admission is $8.25 and each member is required to purchase their own ticket(s).

Parking is Free.

Directions: From I-71: Exit at Fulton Road, keep right at fork. Turn right on Fulton Road and follow Fulton Road/Fulton Parkway South to Wildlife Way. Turn left on Wildlife Way to Zoo entrance.

Kids: Kids are welcome

Dogs: The zoo does not allow dogs.

Accessibility: All areas of Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and The RainForest are wheelchair accessible

    The cold and snow kept me in all day. :( I was looking to come out of hibernation but the weather just isn't there yet.

    Hello Everyone! Unfortunately my husband and I showed up late to the meetup so we missed you guys! We got there at 11:30 none-the-less we stayed and we had a great time. The zoo was beautiful today with the snow and all the winter animals like the bears, seals and wolves were really active today which was a lot of fun to watch! We saw some of the animals I the pic uploads too! Great job on capturing those images! I took a picture in front of the camels too! We'll work on our promptness so that next time we get to meet you all!
