Cleveland Metroparks Zoo

CLEVELAND, OHIO

Collaborating with the Cleveland MetroParks, the Cleveland Zoo and the Cleveland Zoological Society, the major carousel funder, Peninsula Architects developed a master plan and designed several new structures for the zoo. The site and structures have been carefully scaled and designed to blend-in with the carousel theme and existing zoo structures. The scope of work included:

  • A Nature Discovery Zone with various hands-on nature play areas designed for nature discovery and play (10,000 sf)
  • A ten-sided, prefabricated Carousel Building housing a $1.0 million, 50-foot diameter carousel
  • A hospitality building with concessions and restrooms
  • Two 1,800 square-foot open-air pavilions for rentals supporting carousel events
  • A 300-seat event center with catering kitchen, restrooms and viewing areas into major surrounding zoo animal areas
  • A futuristic 4D theater and ticket kiosk
