It is no secret that the secret to a long and happy life is to stay active throughout. What better way to do that than to visit the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo on June 25, 2014 when it is “Senior Safari Day”. All guests age 55 or better will receive free admission to the Zoo and RainForest. There will also be special activities, entertainment and exhibitors geared for those in their silver years.

Guests of all ages to the Zoo that day can visit the exhibiter pavilion that features free health screenings for all as well as senior health/wellness/lifestyle information. The pavilion will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

"The Zoo is a great place to make family memories and Senior Safari gives a little extra incentive for the whole family to come out and play," said Executive Zoo Director Dr. Chris Kuhar.

There is also a complimentary tram that will transport guests to the Primate, Cat and Aquatics Building where you can visit with the gorillas, cheetahs and sharks. There is also giraffe viewing on the savanna and lorikeet feeding in the Australian section and don’t forget to catch the live animal shows during the day.

New this year is the Zoo’s “Circle of Wildlife Carousel” with 64 hand carved and painted animal figures as well as the Nature Discovery Ridge play zone where kids can have fun while learning basic water engineering skills as well as plenty of places to climb around and crawl through.

Northeast Ohio's most-visited year-round attraction, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is open 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily with hours extended to 7:00 p.m. on weekends and holidays from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Admission is $12.25 per person, $8.25 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.
