I have been to the Toledo Zoo several times throughout the years. Every year, the staff makes some improvements, and it is truly one of the nicest zoos in the country. The grounds are well kept. Employees are friendly. There is a good selection of animals to see. Their Christmas lights show is excellent. Prices have certainly gone up in... More

Went on a hot summer day. It was nice to see a zoo where there was a splash park for kids included in it. Nicely laid out and good signage. Only thing missing was more shade. Please add canopies for those hot Ohio summer days.

Zoo is nice. Very small zoo so you can see almost everything in 2 to 3 hours. Price was also reasonable for family of 4. Has lots to see... Giraffes, elephants, gorillas, lions etc. Also has a cool aquarium. Very Small compared to Detroit or Toronto zoo

I have been a Toledo zoo member for about 15 years. The zoo is made many improvements in the past few years. The aquarium for one, is much bigger and also added a touch tank. Always clean and well maintained, proud to have this zoo so close. Very family and kid friendly and this year the zoo added a rope/zip-line... More

As a Toledo Resident, I always have fun at my local Zoo. But I'm dissatisfied with the rising prices and the "fun" attractions they are adding. Am I visiting a Zoo or an Amusement Park??? I wish they would of added more animals instead of zip lines, etc. Even if it were our local oppossum, racoon and so forth. City... More

Very nice and clean Zoo...Not so big that young kids won't enjoy, not so small that older kids won't enjoy. Lots of seating areas, parking was good. We went through the week so it wasn't very busy (which was nice). The giraffe attraction was really good & the aquarium was very nice as well. Over all a nice time with... More

This is one of the best zoo's in the United States. They have a wide array of exhibits and the facilities appear to be appropriate for the animals. There are some new babies born this year on exhibit and new additions.

The zoo is divided into 2 sections and requires walking up a ramp, crossing the pedestrian bridge over the highway, then down another ramp to reach the larger part of the zoo. It is exhausting if you have difficulty walking, even if making use of handicap parking. My friend (70's) and I (mid 60's) were on our "almost annual girlfriends'... More
