Being from Detroit I have heard that the Toledo Zoo is a great place to visit. Finally went! I was mostly impressed by how well things were done. It was clean, pretty, plenty of workers and not too expensive. To me, the zoo was actually quite small with not a huge variety of animals. But that being said there is... More

I appreciate that the zoo is not terribly spread out like some zoos. The children's area is super fun with a fun play set, hands on activities, and... More

This is not just a kid's place to visit, there is much for even the seniors to enjoy. They do have mobile carts available, but call ahead.

Animals....by their very nature...are new every morning!!! We have seen these same animals many times but, on the day of our visit, we saw antics that we'd never seen before. I have been visiting the Toledo Zoo since the early 1950's and, for sure, each visit is better than the previous. Lucas County: keep up the support of this precious... More

The Toledo Zoo is nationally ranked as one of the top 10 zoos in America. They have the largest crocodile in North America, Baru, who came all the way from Australia. They recently renovated their Aquarium which now holds more than 3000 aquatic animals in 178,000 gallons of water. In the summer they hold concerts in their outdoor amphitheater and... More
