After making due for the past few weeks with drive-thru Cruise the Zoo event after weeks of being completely closed, the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is set to reopen on June 17th.

Gov. Mike DeWine yesterday announced zoos and other entertainment attractions including movie theaters and museums could reopen as soon as June 10 under new guidelines to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

“After nearly three months, we can’t wait to reopen Cleveland Metroparks Zoo to our community,” Cleveland Metroparks Zoo Executive Director Chris Kuhar, PhD. said in a statement “As we work diligently to reopen, safety will continue to be our number one priority to protect our employees, guests and all of the animals in our care.”
