This is a great Zoo. The exhibits are nice and clean, animals look happy and there is tons of stuff to do with kids. The zoo has a great layout and allows you to see lots of animals without feeling like you walked 10 miles.

The Toledo Zoo has so much to offer, from the new exhibits to the existing ones. On Mondays if you are a Lucas County resident you can get free admission before noon which is always nice. My favorite is the new aquarium which is huge! In that same area you can check out the Penguins and get closer than the... More

I've been to the Toledo Zoo before and have always enjoyed it but the addition of the new aquarium it's over the top. The aquarium is interactive and has a good variety of sea life. It includes a petting area for big and little children ;) Over the past few years they have added a butterfly house. The African Safari... More

Great exhibits! Many WPA buildings that have withstood the test of time. New interactive aquarium. Free concerts in the outdoor amphitheater on Summer Sunday evenings.

What a wonderful day we had at the Toledo Zoo! The zoo is so clean and well maintained. The new aquarium addition is amazing - especially for kids as it is so interactive. I guess my only complaint is restrooms - there simply needs to be more, especially for women. Women tend to be the parent that takes the children... More

Very casual experience seeing all the animals and even interacting with some. I have not seen the new Aquarium yet but I am sure it is awesome.

This zoo is beautiful and goes on for miles. It's huge. Take your time and you won't regret it. Entrance is $17 a person adult. Be aware - many of the parents don't keep watch over their children and let them run wild. Bring your patience.

I have been visiting the Toledo Zoo since I was pre-school age. I have always loved it. We try to visit at least annually.

This zoo is by far the best in the nation, and I should know I've seen plenty. My family has belong to the zoo for 32 years since we conceived our first Child and continuing on with our grandchildren. I have seen the evolution of the zoo over the past 53 years and it just keeps getting better. If I... More

This zoo is perfect for families with small children and (I hate to admit it) for us older folks. It is smaller, but the animals are all well cared for and the exhibits clean and tidy. We enjoyed our afternoon there,. Bathrooms were clean and kept up. Can't comment on the food as we did not eat there. Definitely recommend... More
