Always fun, clean, and enjoyable.

This Zoo is by far one of the best I have been to. Always clean and the children love it and want to go constantly.

This was our family's first trip to the Toledo Zoo and we were not disappointed. The exhibits were spaced out really well and they were really big. We even got to feed the giraffes! I would definitely recommend this zoo to family and friends. The best zoo we have been to.

Very nice zoo! Came on a July Tuesday and paid $7 to park and $86 in admission fees for 2 adults and 3 kids. Ouch. Lots of animals with a good mix of indoor and outdoor exhibits. Lots of exhibits allowed the kids to get very close to animals. Very nice landscaping throughout. Spent nearly 5 hours and didn't see... More

Where ever we go we try to visit the local zoo. The Toledo zoo did not disappoint, fun, well laid out, very visitor friendly. The young polar bear was the highlight for us!

Anything at the Toledo Zoo is wonderful! From enjoying a concert to bringing the whole family for a wonderful day. Feeding the giraffes or even ziplining. Fun for all ages. I love our zoo

The zoo has been ranked as the best zoo and the exhibits are amazing. Worth the trip for sure. They have updated a lot of old exhibits like the aquarium so don't miss that.

I am a Toledo resident and have a zoo membership. I've gone a few times over the last year. My favorite time to go is always during The Lights around Christmas time. The aquarium is incomparable, a new exhibit and very well designed. I have visited the San Diego & Columbus zoos and I personally feel the Toledo zoo is... More
