Every season at the Toledo Zoo offers something exciting, and winter is no exception. This winter, the Zoo presents Winter Weekends all through January and February, featuring half-price admission (Lucas County residents get an extra discount) and sizzling activities every weekend. It’s frosty fun that might just make you forget it’s winter!
Each Winter Weekend offers cool activities in warm places, from magic and puppet shows to ice-carving demonstrations, live dance performances and hands-on science. That’s on top of Cabin Fever Feeds, where you’ll watch your favorite Zoo animals chow down all across the Zoo, from vultures and orangutans to hornbills and giant spiders. Visit toledozoo.org/winter for a schedule of activities, all offered free with regular half-price admission.
In addition to half-price admission in January and February, the Zoo offers free admission to Lucas County residents from Saturday, January 19 through Monday, January 21. Don’t miss special visits with everyone’s favorite monster, Elmo, on Saturday, January 19! Saturday also features Science Day in Nature’s Neighborhood, sponsored by BP Husky Refining LLC, with hands-on science fun and Imagination Station activities. The Zoo offers a similar Lucas County Appreciation Weekend over President’s Day weekend in February.
In January, the Toledo Zoo is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Zoo is located on the Anthony Wayne Trail (US 25), four miles south of downtown Toledo. For more information, please visit toledozoo.org or call 419.385.4040. Lucas County residents are admitted free of charge each Monday from 10 a.m. to noon. ID showing proof of residency is required.
