I went to the Toledo Zoo and was amazed at this spectacular park! It was clean, well laid out, the animal exhibits were large and the animals looked very healthy (and happy as far a I could tell from a human perspective). My family was so impressed that before we left we invested in a season pass!

Great way to pass time in the morning with my grandchildren . With a Zoo Membership, we can spend the day or just a couple hours. Always an adventure.

Zoo is very clean,New aquarium great. Food is very good. Lights before Christmas is very beautiful. I have been going to the Toledo zoo for 60 years and it just keeps getting better.

If you have not been there before, I would go. The zoo has made many upgrades the past decade or so. The new aquarium is great! It's ranked as one of the best zoos in the country. A little too expensive but still worth it.

My family and I recently visited on a recent road trip to the area. I was impressed with the clean, pleasant environment for both the patrons and the animals. Employees were cheerful and helpful and as an animal lover I was happy that the animal habitats seemed large enough and enriching. My 4 year old fell down at one point... More

Although I am a Clevelander through-and-through, there is no comparison when it comes between their zoo and Toledo's. Visited this past weekend and the weather was gorgeous! All the animals were out and very active, and their exhibits allow for up close viewing. The penguins were close enough to touch (although obviously you're not allowed to do so..lol), the polar...

A great zoo and aquarium. but unfortunately, the splash pad was closed for our visit, yet we all were wearing bathingsuits all day as a result. The parakeets are super cool. Don't miss it as it's at the far end of the park. FYI - $7 parking added to ticket price on the way in.

Absolutely amazing exhibits in this aquarium. Couple that with outstanding exhibits throughout the zoo, and it is well worth making time to visit.

The Toledo Zoo is one of the best zoos I have ever been to. They have great enclosures! There is a funny spot where the gorilla can push a button and a shower gets the people wet who are watching him! very funny! The zoo is clean negotiable. Food is ok, nothing to write home about.
