Father’s Day Fun at the Toledo Zoo

May 28, 2019

TOLEDO, Ohio — Fathers come in all shapes, sizes and species. This Father’s Day, Sunday, June 16, bring your dad to meet our animal dads, including Batu, our white-cheeked gibbon, Kwisha, the gorilla, Boomer, the orangutan and Marty, the polar bear at your Toledo Zoo.

Our Father’s Day celebration includes free admission for all dads accompanied by their child(ren) and fun, dad-friendly games throughout the Zoo’s Main Plaza. Be sure to give Dad the full Zoo tour: watch Baru the saltwater crocodile chow down in the Reptile House, touch sharks and rays in the Aquarium, follow your nose to learn about the distinct scent of maned wolves and listen to the unique vocalizations of the Tasmanian devils.

An add-on (separate fee) Father’s Day BBQ will take place in the Malawi Event Center at 11:30 a.m. and will feature hamburgers, hotdogs, grilled chicken breast, pasta salad, baked beans and more! Beer and wine will also be available for purchase. Prices are for advanced reservations only and include admission but not parking. Children under two are free. To make reservations, please visit toledozoo.org/fathersday or call Group Sales at 419-385-5721 ext. 6001.

While at the Zoo, be bold with Dad and create your own adventure on Expedition Africa! Zipline and Aerial Adventure Course or pose for perfect pictures as the whole family hand-feeds the Masai giraffe herd at Tower Ridge Giraffe Experience. Separate fees apply.

Treat Dad to an all-out adventure this Father’s Day at the Toledo Zoo!
