We love the Toledo Zoo. It's small enough to see everything in one visit. It was busy on Good Friday. But not normally that busy. I love the hippo's. You can get so close to them.

Always fun time to visit the zoo! The lights before Christmas is a great time to " get in the holiday spirit!" I truly recommend becoming a member, the fee pays for it in just a few visits! Plus you get notified in advance of upcoming events.

It's a pretty nice zoo. It's medium sized and aging, but many habitat renovations are taking place. The otters are awesome. Overall worth checking out.

The Toledo Zoo is top-notch. A new penguin exhibit and aquarium will open soon. Very family friendly. It's a classic with something for everyone.

All through the year events are held at the Toledo Zoo, and of course the animals are always a big attraction. Spring reveals new or traveling exhibitions, summer is a family affair, Fall brings the ghouls and goblins and winter begins the Frozen Toezen and Lights before Christmas. The Toledo Zoo is a must when visiting Toledo. Bathrooms are everywhere... More

The Toledo Zoo is one of the best things about living in Toledo. The layout is compact enough so that children don't get overly tired, and many of the exhibits are designed so you really see the animals in settings that resemble their natural habitats. When my kids were little, we were especially fond of the hippo exhibit where animals... More
