1 Lion and Hippo Railroad Bridge Mural near Toledo Zoological Gardens in Toledo, Ohio

Just outside the gates of the Toledo Zoological Gardens in Toledo, Ohio, is a railroad bridge over Anthony Wayne Trail. The mural is a delightful exhibit of the zoo’s residents, including this lion and hippo. Wall mural enthusiasts will also enjoy the artwork inside the zoo. Several were created over fifty years ago as part of the New Deal federal Work Progress Administration program. Recently, Forest “Woody” La Plante, one of the original artists, was invited back by the Arts Council of Greater Toledo to restore them.
