Absolutely love this zoo. So much to see and do. The staff is incredibly friendly and informative. There are play grounds all through out the grounds. The merry go round is a must see. If you can afford the polar bear experience you won't be disappointed. Great way to spend some quality family time!

During the months of January and February, the zoo is half off! While empty of people (I think we saw less than 20 people the whole time we were there), the animals are still around and many were hanging outside regardless of the cold. The Aquarium, Aviary, Reptile House and Polar Area were great ways escape the cold and still... More

Young or Old you will love the Toledo Zoo's animals and attractions. The newly remodeled Aquarium is fantastic and interactive. And during the Christmas holiday season the Zoo's Christmas light display was also voted the Best in the Nation. We have been enjoying our Zoo since I was a child and now with our grandchildren.

This is a great zoo with lots of new stuff to do. Ziplining, the amphitheater with famous acts, the Lights before Christmas, wine tastings, etc. I've gone here for years and have never been disappointed. It's large, clean, and reasonably priced. A must see if you are in Toledo, and worth traveling a bit to see if you are in... More

What a wonderful zoo!!! I have been here three times, and each time is refreshing and new. The new aquarium is out of this world, and the penguins new home is wonderful. I fell in love with Lucas, the young elephant, and the baby orangoutang I believe it was...just to be able to see all the animals and have a... More

I am handicap and use a power wheelchair. I didn't have a single complaint! everything was accessible, and many things I usually need assistance for I... More

Seems like they are always doing something new, to make the last visit different from the last. The new aquarium is awesome. Not as fun for teenagers.
