Very Nice Zoo

This zoo is one of the best I've ever seen. The layout is easy to follow. We had a great time while we were there.

The zoo was exceptionally clean and there was an incredible amount of detail in EVERYTHING! Many of the exhibits could be viewed indoor which provided a nice little break from the warm weather. The zoo is quite large so prepare for the hike! My only complaint is that the food service workers were extremely unpleasant and acted as if we... More

Historic architecture combined with modern enclosures to make the Toledo Zoo the #1 Zoological Park in the United States. A great way to entertain your family at a very reasonable price.

We have been to many zoos. This is definitely one we will visit again. Another review said Columbus is much better, we enjoyed Columbus but really thought this Toledo Zoo was a higher favorite for us. The aviary is fantastic. The hippo has an enclosure like many seals at other zoos allowing you to see above and below the water,... More

We loved the area where they have the polar bears(2) and seal/sea lions. The big window under the water is so cool that you can see them close and doing there thing. We arrived in time for feeding the penguins! She sounded a bell and all these little guys dove in the water and she fed each one fish. They... More

What a wonderful zoo - clean, bright, lots and lots of animals !!! Prices were more reasonable than most places. The exhibits were all great ! Need a full day to see it all. Be sure to visit - you won't regret it. A Cut Above the rest. Take a picnic lunch, snacks too; tables right inside.

The zoo is very well organized. There is a new aquarium that just open and it is wonderful. The polar area has the most beautiful polar bears and they are actually friendly. There is more to see than can be done in a day. A great place for kids and adults.

Had the pleasure of visiting the Zoo while in Toledo this summer. The grounds are nicely landscaped and the animals are separated such that there aren't bottle necks with the visitors. The zoo had a good amount of diversity as it relates to the animals. There were adequate restaurants and the restrooms were clean. Highly recommend!

The Toledo Zoo is a perfect compliment to the Detroit zoo. Where the Detroit zoo is open and sprawling, the Toledo zoo is partitioned and intimate. We really loved getting so close to the animals for a change. The highlights were the elephants, hippos, and aquarium for sure, but we enjoyed every exhibit. It may have helped that we came... More

Need I say more? Wildlife in as close to their natural habitat as possible. It's more like we, the visitors, are the ones in cages! Orangutans are especially comical to watch, as they investigate hiding places that the staff has hidden their food and daily snacks. The penguins have a new home that you can be within 3 feet of...
