Although the Zoo entrance lies halfway between both metro stops, it is recommended that you take the metro to Cleveland Park Station because it is a downhill walk to the zoo. It is an uphill walk of the same distance if you take the metro to the Woodley Park-Zoo/Adams Morgan Station. It is a 10 to 15 minute walk from each metro station.
When exiting the Cleveland Park metro stop, take the exit on the east side of the street and walk south, toward the Uptown movie theater and the restaurants that line Connecticut Avenue (away from 7-11 and the Exxon station). The National Zoo is on the east side of the street, about three blocks from the stop, after a bridge and just past a large apartment building.
