About Komodo Kingdom
A Green Exhibit
Komodo Kingdom received a Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification in 2007, two years after it opened. At the time it was the fifteenth building in Ohio with such designation, the third in a zoo in the U.S. and the first in Summit County.
4-star Green Certified Restaurant
The Komodo Kingdom Café is a 4-star green certified restaurant by the Green Restaurant Association, making it one of the greenest restaurants in the U.S. The zoo’s café was the first 4-star green restaurant in the state of Ohio. The Akron Zoo was the first zoo in the country to receive this honor.
The lower level of Komodo Kingdom is not accessible to the public on a daily basis, but does include three classrooms that are used for Zoo Camps, Snooze at the Zoo, early childhood programs, home school programs and more.
