On weekdays through September and October, seniors ages 60+ will receive the following benefits:
• FREE parking in the Anthony Wayne Trail lot
• FREE small fresh-brewed coffee and a mini-muffin at the Timberline Bakery between 10am and 2pm;
• $5 off Senior Granparent memberships for the Toledo Zoo
• A special senior-only 20% discount on items purchased in the North Star Trading Post® gift shop.
• Seniors also receive FREE admission on Tuesdays. It’s a great way to reconnect with your Toledo Zoo!
• Note: Caregivers who are directly responsible for assisting seniors during Senior Discovery Days are eligible for free Zoo admission. Please pre-register with the Zoo’s Visitor Services Department by calling 419.389.6561 before your visit. This applies only to professional caregivers; regular admission rates will apply for volunteers and relatives of visiting seniors.


Special activities take place each Tuesday.  Ranging from guided tours of the Toledo Zoo’s historic buildings, to musical entertainment and games, Senior Discovery Days also provides senior citizens with an opportunity to stroll the beautiful grounds and see the many fantastic animals at a leisurely pace.
