Parks officials are proposing price increases for Cleveland’s zoo, in the face of reduced state funding.

The Plain Dealer reports a plan would increase the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo’s adult admission from $11 to $12.25 during the season that runs from March 31 through October. Children from ages 2 to 11 would pay $8.25, up from the current $8.

The lower prices charged during the other, colder months of the year also would go up.

The proposed admission hikes will be part of a 2012 budget that three park commissioners will vote on in March.

Metroparks Treasurer David Kuntz says the zoo and the rest of the parks system will lose $12 million because of anticipated state cutbacks between now and 2014.
