We strive to bring you the best experience at the Toledo Zoo while providing the best care of our animals and their habitats. Periodic construction and maintenance are part of this commitment, and occasionally exhibits and facilities may close temporarily for construction or maintenance. We apologize if any of your favorite exhibits are closed during your planned visit, and we hope that you will still join us for a day of adventure.
