Visited this weekend and again so impressed. Exhibits are easy to reach and engaging for children. Very good upkeep of the zoo. Many animals we don't get to see at our home zoo (Detroit Zoo). Some enclosures do seem a little small for the animals though. Im confused where the Lions went though. We didnt make it through the whole... More

Free concerts for visitors and a free tour of the zoo before the concert. World class symphonic music with great seating and parking in the city. Part of the city's contribution to summer events and music series. Awesome sunset as the symphony performed.

We discovered the treehouse slide and climbing wall along with the exploration water stream. What a delight for children to actively engage in running, climbing and pouring! The inside building held other wonders to explore including building, climbing and nature exploration. It is the perfect spot for toddlers and young children to explore and grow!

It was nice that they honor our... More

Nicely laid out and clean, the Toledo Zoo made for a fun-filled day of animals. Our favorite resident was the Sloth Bear. She was friendly and engaging with onlookers. We grabbed a bite to eat from one of the concession areas and found the food to be good and prices to be very reasonable. Visitors may also bring food or... More
