Imagine walking into a wooded patch and there- suddenly you see a Giraffe head pop out of the greens- what a wonderful surprise that would be! At the Woodland Park Zoo, this is a regular happening. You get a chance to observe animals in their native habitat, leading their lives as if they were in the wild. This amazing scene part of a series of regular exhibits and it is one of the first zoos to have exhibits that immerse you into the natural world of nature almost completely. This is not limited to animals from only one climatic zone because they've created environments that blend from one climate zone to another to give you a real-time feel of nature at its best. Using ambient audio, the experience is heightened. With a thick canopy of green trees the walk through the zoo is nothing short of an adventure on its own!
Most zoos have good displays but at Woodland Park Zoo you have the chance to interact with baby animals too. In the Australian exhibit you even get a chance to feed a variety of Parrots and get more informed about how to help bird species in your own surroundings.
For those of you who love flowers the zoo has a beautiful rose garden with the most exquisite varieties of roses on 2 acres of land and make for a pretty sight.
A little treat for children and adults alike is a ride on the vintage carousel. It's a beautiful hand-crafted ride and the proceeds go to better care of the animals and zoo maintenance. The Zoomazium is perfect for toddlers as it has fun activities like climbing trees and mountains and has an exploring area.
The Zoo is a century old and they have received many awards for their excellent quality exhibits and their dedicated staff make the experience memorable. The cafe has delicious food when you feel hungry and the gift shop's cute knickknacks and memorabilia sale also helps zoo maintenance. So plan a day around your visit to the Woodland Park Zoo and get the chance to see animals from different areas around the world at a very close distance. An Arctic Fox or a Humboldt Penguin could just become your new best friend!

I go to Woodland Park zoo with my girl at least once a week. This zoo is amazing. From wonderful exhibits, to great conservation efforts, they really try to make life for their animals filled with good terrain and fun enrichment. They throw in pumpkins and hide treats for Halloween and have fun Christmas lights during the season. Memberships are very reasonably priced. The grounds are clean and worked on all the time.
I always love coming to this zoo. It's a different experience every single time I visit. My children love to come wander the paths and look at the animals. I love the vegetation that lines all the paths providing shade in the heat of summer and making you feel less like you are in the middle of a major city. I've been coming my entire life and hand to plans to stop!
I went to the Woodland Zoo for the first time and was very pleasantly surprised with the different exhibits. Most of the animals are kept in large areas that allows them to move around as if they were in their original habitat. One of the things I really enjoyed is that there are more than one species of animals in most of the areas. The park is divided by Continents so you see the species that are native to that Continent. The Reptile House was closed because they had experienced a fire. There were people who work at the Zoo located in all the different areas to answer questions regarding the different animals. Several of them told us various stories about the different animals. Our favorite were the Chimpanzees. They were taking naps near the glass wall and you could see the dad, the mom and a baby who was born at the Zoo. I also loved watching the otters swim around in a playful way. The grounds are lovely and very well maintained. There is a lovely old fashioned Horse Carrousel that works with solar energy. I will definitely go back to visit.
I have seen this place evolve over almost 40 years and feel that it keeps getting better. We still buy a seasons pass each year and go fairly often since it is much more like a very nice park than a standard zoo. Very easy to forget you are in the middle of Seattle.
Big well organized zoo. The Woodland Park Zoo is well maintained and nicely organized. You do walk around quite a bit from area to area but they have it laid out really well. The spaces are large for the animals and provide great indoor/outdoor viewing spaces. There are seating spaces and food options in several locations.
