Membership Matters: Just a Reminder
Please bring your membership card with you to receive free parking, admission and Zoo discounts. Zoo memberships are non-transferable, non-refundable, and cannot be shared by two households. Membership prices, categories and benefits are subject to change without notice.
Members cannot substitute a friend or relative for a named cardholder. Your Toledo Zoo membership has a tremendous value. Each membership is designed for a specified set of individuals – it is not an open-ended admission card. By naming each adult and requiring them to show a picture ID, we are protecting the integrity of the membership and the benefits associated with it. If you wish to bring friends or relatives to the Zoo, please consider adding the +1 or +2 guest option to your membership, or an upgrade to our President’s Circle, which provides 20 guest privileges per year.
If you are ordering or renewing a membership within this time frame and need your materials sooner, please contact the Zoo’s Membership Department at 419-724-5915. If purchasing a membership as a holiday gift, please make your purchase by December 12th to ensure delivery by Christmas.
...please stop at our Membership Sales window located in the Anthony Wayne Trail entry plaza for a day pass. If your membership was purchased online, you may go directly to the admission gate present your confirmation email, which serves as your temporary membership card until your permanent card arrives..
