Planning a birthday party in the Toledo area? Searching for a fun place that’s more than cupcakes and balloons? Don’t want the headache and hassle of hosting it at home? Want the party to be entertaining and amusing? Here are a few fun spots in Toledo that would be thrilled to host your child’s birthday party.
The Toledo Zoo would be a fun spot for your little one (and his/ her friends) to monkey around at. What can be more fun that celebrating (okay not literally) your birthday with tigers, flamingos, and elephants? They have two rooms (Giraffe and Cheetah party room) that are designed specifically for children’s events. Your little one and his/her guests will enjoy touring the zoo and meeting the animals. (The zoo is home to more than 4,700 animals.) The party package also includes a custom-made cake, lunch, souvenir for all of the guests, fun games, a photo of everyone who attended, a fun craft, and much more. It will be a learning experience for all, but will be very amusing. For more information about hosting the party at the Toledo zoo call them at (419) 385-5721, extension 3094. The zoo is located about four miles south of downtown Toledo, visit their website for directions.

Local Park or Playground
Would you prefer to put the money in your child’s college fund instead? A terrific idea is to host it at a local city park or playground. It will necessitate more work on your part, but it will still be entertaining and create lots of memories. Just be sure to get a cake, some party plates, and you’re all set.
