“From the Arctic tundra to the wilds of Africa”
The Toledo Zoo is one of the world’s most complete zoos—it’s also the region’s top family destination! Let The Toledo Zoo take you from the Arctic tundra to the wilds of Africa, from the tropical rainforest to the Sonoran Desert and all points between—all in one great day. Each year nearly one million people come to The Toledo Zoo to experience the wonders of the natural world, stroll our beautiful grounds and explore our historic WPA-era buildings. As you do, you’ll encounter animals ranging from mammoth African elephants and majestic bald eagles to tiny toads and and even insects and spiders. The popularity of the Zoo has increased dramatically over the last twenty years. Restored facilities, new exhibits and a concerted effort to address the needs of the visitor have resulted in an average attendance of 875,000 people each year, with over 1,000,000 visitors in 1988, 1994, and 1999. Special events such as The Lights Before Christmas capture the charm and character of the Zoo and have become traditions for Toledo families. Today, The Toledo Zoo is home to over 9,000 animals representing over 800 species. It’s one of the world’s most complete zoos—it’s also the region’s top family destination!
One of the best zoos I've been to! Definitely worth a stop! You could easily spend a whole day here, but we had a shorter timeframe available and did the whole zoo in about 3 hours.
Great Zoo! They have a lot of the larger animals and they are easy to view. We make a day trip out of visiting this zoo.
Penguin walk thru closed during inclement weather otherwise this is a beautiful exhibit.
A really fantastic zoo for the layout (well done), the animals (really diverse) and the upkeep (kept in great shape). Also, the Lights Before Christmas is awesome in December at night
