Akron Zoo is located in Akron, Ohio and has been around since the early 1900’s. It is a place of enjoyment for children and families to be close to the animals and learn about nature and wildlife. The zoo occupies a total of 77 acres. Thirty-five (35) of those acres are developed with exhibits, guest amenities and support facilities, with the hope to continue expanding in the future. Akron Zoo was designed to provide an up-close animal experience. In most of the exhibits you can come nose-to-nose with the animals through the looking glass. This allows the guest to connect and safely engage with the wildlife.
