About Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle

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!

Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle Reviews - Write a Review

  • Really a solid experience. They seem to have a good way to get the animals closer to the glass. The gorillas and the orangutans are basically right in your lap. Petting zoo as well but no duh. The only animals I had issue seeing is the bear and the hippo. We did get to see the hippo this time but no bear again. Food is on the high side but not more then any other zoo. Didn't see any of the shows or anything but the staff was pleasant. Wild lights was really well done. Lots of stuff to see. Cool parties going on. You can get Coco and what not. Really a good place.

  • Worth a trip if you're visiting Seattle. Admission is reasonable. Zoo was very clean. It takes a good 3 hours at least to take a look at everything but is worth the time it takes! Unfortunately part of the zoo was closed due to damage whenever I visited in early 2017, so we weren't able to see the entire thing, but I enjoyed my time and will be returning in the future. It's a good place to spend the day if you want to see all kinds of different animals from around the world!

  • This zoo has a lot to offer in such a small area, which means one can see a lot without dedicating 12 hours(like the San Diego Zoo). The staff has always been very knowledgeable and friendly! There are many open aviaries to walk through and things to do for all ages! Be prepared for premium priced food and such, but it goes to the zoo upkeep.

  • We had a good time at the zoo, however we had an unfortanant incident with our vehicle. But the zoo staff not only assisted us, but Buddy (a zoo staff member) took my little to the store and loaded her with items while waiting! Plus they let us sit in their heated van as we waited for a tow. A nice lady waited with us as well. Great job zoo staff! Thank you!

  • I went for the zoo's WildLights display, which happens every winter during the holidays. The displays were absolutely incredible--everything from multicolored string lights to elaborate exhibits that were created to resemble the zoo's animals. I was amazed and took about 100 photos, not a one of which even compared to the actual magnificence of the exhibit. Highly recommended as a fun family holiday activity.
