The Zagat Survey ranked the world-famous Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden the  #1 Family Attraction in Cincinnati and one of the top 10 zoos in the nation! When your group comes to the Zoo, they are experiencing the very best.

Nowhere else in Cincinnati can you stand eye-to-eye with the world’s tallest animal when mixing and mingling with colleagues on Giraffe Ridge. And that’s just one option! No matter what the occasion, the Zoo’s animal encounters will take any group outing to the next level.

Solar PanelsGo Green

We’re doing our part to conserve natural resources that are critical to saving wildlife by “greening” the Zoo’s daily operations and reducing our impact on the environment. Our $19.6 million Historic Vine Street Village park entrance and our largest publicly-accessible, urban solar array in the country are just a couple of reasons why we’re the Greenest Zoo in America.

No two visits to the Zoo are the same. The Zoo is ever-evolving to improve the corporate and general visitor experience. Board meetings and picnics don’t have to be boring. With over 500 animals and 3,000 plant species to discover, you’re bound to learn something you never knew before.
