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!

Nice zoo. Not the largest I have been to but a reasonable size with a good variety of animals. (More than enough to keep you busy for a day.) Nice peaceful setting. Lots of parking (we went on a Friday). We purchased a family year membership which seemed very reasonably priced vs the cost of individual/day prices. The only negatives I had were the food/food court. The food was okay, but everything seemed a little expensive especially when you are feeding a whole family. Also it would be nice if there were deals for things like food and parking with your year membership. We will likely be back a number of more times throughout the year.
I always love it here.. the staff is wonderful and informative. Place is always clean, the animals well cared for. If you have any questions people are quick to help and answer any questions you have. Just be prepared to walk all day, so wear comfortable shoes, take water and make sure to also take breaks and rest along the way.. make a day of it and enjoy nature
The zoo has a more natural setting unlike others. It is beautiful and serene. I particularly enjoyed walking through the tropical jungle type areas. The animals are exquisite. We were able to see quite a few of them the day we went and we were fortunate to have a sunny day in Seattle! They also have a wonderful carousel that is run by solar power. I thought that was AWESOME!
Most animals here are living more in habitats than exhibits, which seems the only reasonable future for zoological gardens. This zoo is brilliantly arranged. It packs an amazing amount into its space, but feels spacious and massive. You lose track of the fact that you're near streets, much less inside a medium city. The other not-large zoos I've seen are laughable and cruel compared to this one. Yet the people watching is indeed excellent, and the visiting kids are clearly having a blast. Annual membership is very reasonably priced. A loving, organized troop of locals clearly keep this place awesome with contributed time and money. Edit: The chowder house has 2 big, decent $8 salads, though blackened fish on them is $4 extra. You're free to bring your own food & drink, and the picnic areas are nice. Parking is limited and costs $6. The bus drops you right at the west entrance (55th and Phinney) so take that or your bike if you can.
Beautiful zoo with authentic habitats for various animal groups. They have several demonstrations here and there each day. We've seen the raptor demo "Earn Your Wings", and the "Tiger Gate" where tigers come to the gate at the call of the trainers and have a short training session before an audience. In both programs, we saw interesting animals up close, learned about their ways and needs, and came away with a new appreciation both for those animals and for environmental issues relating to those in the wild. Lots of parking lots, each costing $6 for the day. As a grandparent, I was able to buy a family pass which covers me, 2 other adults, and all my grandchildren under 18 for a year. The cost was about that of two full priced visits! Check out the various options for membership--they're a great deal!
