About Cleveland Metroparks Zoo

The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is a zoo with a banquet hall in the Cleveland, Ohio area. This zoo hosts indoor and outdoor weddings at their numerous exhibits and animal houses. Couples seeking a modern or tropical wedding can find this venue just 18 minutes from the Edgewater Pier.

Facilities and Capacity
This venue offers four locations couples can choose from depending on the size of their celebration and their favorite zoo animals. The Rainforest, a two-acre and two-story facility, is packed with tropical plants and over 600 animals. The space seats up to 300 guests for a couple's event, and allows them to experience a lush jungle wedding surrounded by over 10,000 types of plantlife. The Primate, Cat & Aquatics building combines numerous animal experiences for couples and guests. In this space, guests can sip cocktails in the aquarium, eat dinner near the gorillas and dance by the leopards. A newly installed bamboo dance floor graces this facility, which seats up to 225 guests. The Wade Hall & Deck welcomes up to 120 seated guests to enjoy the venue's view of Waterfowl Lake. This outdoor location showcases the zoo's oldest building, built in 1884, as the backdrop. The Wolf Wilderness Lodge seats up to 64 wedding guests. This rustic location is reminiscent of a trapper's cabin with a working fireplace and antler chandelier. The lodge's grounds feature a wolf pack, aviary with a bald eagle, beaver den and underwater viewing of pond fish.

    Fun venue with great staff

    We were in the Primates, Cats, and Aquatics building for our reception. It was such a fun venue with all of the animals and they even brought some during cocktail hour you could interact with. Leah was fantastic in helping to coordinate everything and making sure all of the details were exactly what we wanted. She was incredibly friendly and helpful throughout the process. Nicole and the rest of the catering team were great as well. Also, very friendly and made sure the menu was exactly what we wanted. The food was great! Everything went smoothly and they were a great group of people to work with.
