- Get Involved
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.

The cheetahs will be off exhibit until early summer.
The rear section of the Reptile House will be under construction between November 2012 and May of 2013 in preparation for our exciting new saltwater crocodile exhibit. The exhibits in the front section of the Reptile House will still be open throughout the construction phase so visitors are still welcome to come see our great assortment of snakes, lizards, and turtles.
Important note to all visitors planning to arrive at our Broadway entrance:
Due to the Aquarium’s construction, foot traffic entering our Broadway entrance is currently diverted through our Amphitheatre. During the summer months, the Amphitheatre hosts various concerts as part of our Summer Concert Series. The Broadway entrance may be closed on concert days so all visitors will be required to enter and exit the Zoo from our entrance at the Anthony Wayne Trail.

Toledo Zoo Aquarium
The Toledo Zoo’s Aquarium is closed for a long term renovation project that will be completed in 2015. The area surrounding the Aquarium, including the path between the Aquarium and the Amphitheatre may be closed during the construction phase. When needed, signs may be present in the area with info and directions for detours.
The Aquarium building’s historic WPA architecture will be preserved during the construction phase, but the interior is being completely remodeled. While visitors and Zoo staff will surely miss the Aquarium during its renovation phase, we are excited about unveiling the newly renovated Aquarium in 2015. Stay tuned!
