I have been visiting the Toledo Zoo for approximately 20 years and always find it to be an enjoyable experience. It is the perfect size; not too big, not too small. The exhibits are well-maintained with the animals well-being as the top consideration which I find important. The zoo has updated/expanded various exhibits over the years; they are always making improvements. The most recent improvement being the African elephant exhibit which is awesome...not to mention the addition of baby Lucas. The kids will have a blast not only watching the various critters big and small, but also the zoo's cool playground called Nature's Neighborhood...lots of interactive fun! Some of my personal favorites are the polar bear exhibit, the "hippoquarium" , and the aviary. Another plus is this zoo is open year-round with lots of special events featured throughout the year...Boo at the Zoo, Lights Before Christmas, Frozen Toezen. You'll have fun no matter what time of year you visit.

Great zoo for a smaller city. Aquarium is closed for 2-3 years, i was surprised it would take that long to renovate. Since we went late in the season crowd was small, and admission was cheaper.

I have been to a number of Zos around the country. This is a wonderful place for all ages. Easy to navigate and they do a great job with the exhibits. We are on our 4th generation of Zoo lovers. The zoo has expanded in amazing ways since I was a little girl ( long time ago) and they ore on the cutting edge of presenting animals in a natural habitat. They also do a wonderful job with sharing animals and in the breeing program. VISIT...you won't be sorry!

What I like best about this zoo is that the close interaction you could have with the animals. Compare to many zoo when the animals are hiding in the back farrr away, the toledo zoo was designed very nicely & thoughtfully that visitors could feel being close to the animals. Many areas are wider in width then dept, so there is still room for the animal, but you really can see them! Very nice, clean zoo, with good range of animals! Wonderful experience.
