The Akron Zoo is one of the best zoos for families. They cater to families with kids and their latest addition fits right in line. The new Akron Zoo Conservation Carousel is now open.  It is a breathtaking with 33 locally hand-carved wooden animals to ride. Some animals are copies of those that live right in the zoo including the Komodo dragon, tiger, and penguin. What is really neat is that they have images on the wall of where the animals you are riding live in the wild. Very cool! The price is just $2 for each 2-1/2 minute ride.

    I like that the Akron zoo has a Carousel for the kids to ride! also I like that its a smaller zoo so the children can actually see all the animals before they close!

    The Akron Zoo sounds like a fun place even for kids under one (like my 10 month old daughter). The carousel would be fun to watch (even if she cant ride on it quote yet).

    The 5th annual summer safari sounds like fun, I will be off for 7 days during the middle of august and it would be awesome to go for the first time to the akron zoo with my almost 3 year old son. Here’s hoping!
