Great adventure for kids and families. The animals and exhibits are both informative and entertaining. Animals are in family-friendly exhibits that are designed to be a humane as possible. Great for the little ones to see many of the critters that they only see on TV or in cartoons. Lots of opportunity for photos too.

This is a great little zoo. The paths are well marked and have a good flow. The animals are well cared for and their habitats are well maintained. There are interactive areas for children which make it fun . There is a food court with plenty of seating, but I find the food a bit pricey. Memberships are available online... More

Loved this place! It wasn't the biggest zoo but the exhibits were great and interactive. All of the animals looked happy and healthy. I was just telling my husband how I wanted to go back!

We went To the Akron zoo over Christmas. The zoo was very well lighted for the holiday. There were some animals out. There were fires around the park. My sister-in-law from South Dakota and her family came, they were very impressed. It was a good night

The Akron Zoo is small enough to do in less than an entire day, but big enough to make you feel like you got to see a great zoo full of animals. It's very pretty. It is a bit hilly, so take your time and enjoy the scenery.

Excellent, family friendly, interactive, clean, clear viewing of animals is easy for all. The parking is convenient and the landscaping inside and outside of the zoo is beautiful.

The Akron zoo is a great family zoo. They have play areas, cafeteria, ferriswheel, and greats animals for the size of zoo it is. Opps, they also have picnic areas around the park.
