The Toledo Zoo

Travel the world in one amazing day! With more than 5,000 animals representing 500+ species, the Toledo Zoo offers your family an experience like no other.

Giraffes, zebras, ostriches and more roam our Africa! exhibit during warmer months- and you can delve even deeper on our Safari Railway. See polar bears, seals and grey wolves in the Arctic Encounter, and new in 2014, explore Penguin Beach, our walk-through penguin exhibit that features viewing from three different levels. You'll even see them "fly underwater!"

You'll get close to orangutans and gorillas in our Kingdom of the Apes, while our lemurs, monkeys and gibbons will delight you with their antics in Primate Forest. The Zoo is also home to a historic Reptile House featuring Baru, the biggest saltwater crocodile in North America (brought all the way from Australia in 2013 with the support of Block Communications, Inc.), plus an award-winning aviary that includes airy free-flight walk-throughs. Tembo Trail brings you eye-to-eye with elephants, rhinos and more, including hippos at our world-renowned Hippoquarium. In our Museum of Science, you'll encounter frogs, salamanders and bugs of all kinds in the crawlspace and Amazing Amphibians.

The kids will love Nature's Neighborhood, our award-winning children's zoo- it's 100% explore-able, hands-on fun! When it's time to eat, grab a bite at the Carnivore Cafe (where lions, tigers, and other big cats once lived) or at the Timberline Bakery. And all through your visit, our beautiful gardens will grace your way.

These are just a few reasons we're one of the country's top zoos. But don't take our word for it' come see for yourself.
