Senior Discovery Days Return to the Zoo

Posted Aug 26th, 2013 by Andi Norman  Category: Community Interest,


Age has its benefits. With Tuesday free admission and special events, Senior Discovery Days let you explore the Toledo Zoo and see it in a whole new way, thanks to sponsorship support from Health Care REIT.

Each Tuesday (September 3, 10, 17 and 24, along with October 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29) brings a new adventure at the Zoo, from guided tours of Works Progress Administration (WPA)-era buildings to bingo and big band music. In addition to these Tuesday events, each weekday offers free parking in the Anthony Wayne Trail lot, free fresh-brewed coffee and a mini-muffin in the Zoo’s North Star Trading Post® (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and more.

And don’t miss Senior Safari on Tuesday, September 10. The Toledo Zoo and the Area Office of Aging Northwestern Ohio present this day of fun focused on seniors, including health screenings, exercise, safety tips and all the exploration the Zoo has to offer. Lunch will be provided in the Nairobi Pavilion; tickets may be purchased in advance by calling the Area Office on Aging at 419.382.0624.

Tours of WPA-era buildings, including the Museum of Science, Aviary and Reptile House, begin at 11 a.m. and last 30 to 60 minutes. For more information and a schedule of all the activities, visit the Zoo’s website at

In September and October, the Toledo Zoo is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends in September) and is located on the Anthony Wayne Trail (US 25), four miles south of downtown Toledo. For more information, please visit or call 419.385.4040. Lucas County residents are admitted free of charge on non-holiday Mondays from 10 a.m. to noon. ID showing proof of residency is required.
