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.

    Best Wedding Venue!

    We're so glad we picked Stillwater Place as our reception venue. Our guests absolutely loved the carousel and animals at cocktail hour and enjoyed being able to spend time outside on the patio during the reception. Alascia really made our wedding experience with Cleveland Metroparks Zoo phenomenal. She was easy to get in touch with and provided quick and detailed responses to our seemingly neverending questions. Alascia went above and beyond in helping my maid of honor set up a surprise for us as part of her wedding speech which really meant a lot to us. It was such a relief knowing Alascia and her team were taking such good care of our guests and event! Our day would not have gone so smoothly without them! We are so happy we chose to have our reception at Stillwater Place. We all had an amazingly fun time!

    Absolutely perfect, lovely, well done, flawless

    Alascia was amazing; our wedding went without a hitch. The food was fantastic, the venue perfect. I couldn’t be happier with how our wedding turned out. The servers were pleasant and friendly.
