Akron Zoo welcomes more than 1 million visitors per year who come to see approximately 700 animals from more than 90 species in six recreated regions of the world. Meet the zoo's lions, tigers, sloth bears, and red pandas at the tiger valley, and get close to endangered Humboldt penguins. See leopards, jaguars, and lemurs in their habitat, which includes a 7.5 m (25 ft) waterfall. Numerous bats also inhabit the wilderness, while the indoor exhibit features a Komodo dragon, giant Galapagos tortoises, and golden monkeys. Check out the exhibits of marine animals, such as seahorses, jellyfish, lionfish, and octopuses, and look for the interactive touch tank. Take a look at our Akron holiday planning site to schedule your visit to Akron Zoo and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • What they do, they do well! This zoo is big enough to be interesting and small enough to be fully explored in 1 to 2 hours.
