“One of the Great Zoos in the U.S.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I am a zoo person and love to go to zoos wherever I travel. By far, the Toledo Zoo is one of if not the best zoo that I have been to. Good exhibits that are animal friendly, a natural habitat setting for as many of the animals as possible is a treat. The place is always spotless and the maintenance of the animal areas is excellent. A great experience.

“Good Zoo”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

The zoo was better than Detroit, Binder Park and John Ball. It is not as big as Columbus, but every bit as good.

We love this zoo! It's compact and still gives the animals a natural environment. Toledoan's must love their zoo, because it's great!

“fantastic light show”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Snow on the ground, large group of family together at the holidays, made for wonderful visit to Zoo for the light show. Watching the grandchildren's reactions were priceless. Worth the price of admission.
