The Toledo zoo is the best zoo I have been to. It's clean, has a great layout and wonderful exhibits. I can't wait for the aquarium to open up.

If you want to see some happy penguins and hear them in their habitat like you have never before, go to the Toledo Zoo and check out the Penguins new home! This exhibit enables you to see the penguins do more than swim but live and enjoy their lives. Take the kids, go as adults, whichever you prefer but it's... More

I was only happy with the admission price because we were given a 50% discount thanks to being Cleveland Zoo Members, but I was very unhappy about the $7 parking fee (Cleveland is FREE & Akron charges only a few bucks).

After we traveled 2 hours to get here we were disappointed to find out that the artic encounter (seals and bears), penguins and conservancy area were all closed.

I was surprised by the cost to get in and they didn't offer a AAA discount but we enjoyed our visit. Make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes.

This was our first time at the Toledo Zoo. We had fun. Most of the animals were sleeping. Good thing that the ones that were awake entertained us enormously. We can't wait to come back.

The Toledo, OH zoo ranks among the top rated zoos in the US. The grounds, trails and lanscaping are gorgeous. The lights displays during the Holiday Season is a "must see"!

This zoo is a great place to spend the day. The Aviary is a must see. The gardens are beautiful and relaxing. Relax and watch the seals swim by...one seemed to only swim upside down. It is one of the best zoos i have been to.
