Attractions: Zoo Blooms at the Cincinnati Zoo

By Maija Zummo · March 30th, 2010 · CityBeat Recommends

One half of the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is the animal zoo part, but the frequently overlooked half is the Zoo’s beautiful botanical garden.

The annual "Zoo Blooms" event celebrates the coming of spring and the gardens with a magnificent explosion of colorful flowers. More than 93,000 tulips and 1 million daffodils, hyacinths, flowering trees, shrubs and other spring bulbs will bloom in one of only two accredited botanical gardens in Ohio.

Red and yellow tulips will bloom first in early April, followed by every color you can imagine in one of the largest tulip displays in the Midwest, dubbed “Tulip Mania.”

This ever-changing display will morph into different colors throughout the spring season. And every Thursday during Zoo Blooms don’t miss Tunes & Blooms, free concerts in the garden featuring local bands from 6-8:30 p.m.

General admission is $14 for adults and $9 children/seniors. Zoo hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. daily.
