Always a good time! The winter is our favorite time to go to see all the lights. We don't miss a year, it is perfect for family time!

One of the top US Zoos in diversity, it's also one of the most compact. It can be enjoyed in it's entirety in one day but is probably better done over two so that you're not so rushed. Ample parking with just a VERY short walk to the gate and first exhibits. Historic zoo that is quite old but really... More

Great zoo for families in that entire zoo can be walked easily in a day by school-aged children, and the animals are by-and-large accessible rather then hidden in some dark corner of a cage where you spend most of your time looking to find the animal. Have pics of my grandkids sitting the only width of the plexiglass window away... More

We have visited many of the top zoos in the country, foot for foot the Toledo Zoo stands in a league of their own. The diversity and number of animals observed makes for a fun and compact visit. Not long walks between exhibits. Opening in March a new aquarium.

I've been a member of the Toledo Zoo for about 15 years. When my girls were young, we came here a lot, and they took advantage of numerous summer camps, including a Junior Zookeeper program. Now that they are grown, we visit less, although the zoo does have a number of special events for adults. The Lights Before Christmas are... More

I've lived in the Toledo area for almost 25 years. The zoo has been our "go to" place every year. The zoo has made consistent upgrades and has exciting things coming, ie-aquarium. The negatives-it's gotten too expensive. My husband and I visited on a friday and were able to get 1/2 off the adult charge of $17.00. Still had to... More

This zoo is one of the best zoos I have visited. It is really accessible. We took our nursing home resident here a few times and had no problem maneuvering them around in their wheelchairs! The exhibits are close enough together so you are not wandering a long time before you see your next animal. The exhibits are extremely well... More
