Safe Kids Greater Toledo will be here with lots of activities to raise awareness on keeping kids safe at home, on the road and at play!

New this year, as part of our Conda Family Zoo For All program, we will have quiet hour from 9 – 10 a.m. Visitors can enjoy the Zoo without added background noise and music.  This opportunity is open to members, as well as non-members.

Spend time at our Sensory Area, located in our formal gardens, near Great Apes. This will be a quiet zone, with sensory-friendly activities and dedicated staff & volunteers available to assist in any sensory needs.
