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!

  • This zoo is relatively large and will require anywhere from 2-3 hours to view the whole place, a lot of animals to see from all over the world. All the animals were out, which made of some really good clicks even though it was quiet chilly by the time evening rolled around.. The zoo is laid out really nicely but does tend to get confusing with all the different trails leading to the different sections of the zoo but if you are good at navigating with a map you should be good to go. You get a see a lot of animals from around the world along with a souvenir shop, restaurant and small canteens within the zoo, good to grab hot drinks and snacks while walking around. More than enough parking at this zoo but its $5.75 to park for the day. Admission price was reasonable for the amount of time you get to spend and see the animals. Worth a trip while in Seattle.

  • We went in early October so we paid half the price but still had full price fun! My Husband and I were not messing around, we were on the move the whole time and it still took us 4+ hours to get through all the animals. It was fun and educational, the animals were very active and fun to see. Would definitely go there again!

  • It is a large zoo with animals from all over the world. My son enjoyed seeing Humboldt penguins and my daughter likes tigers. They had a wonderful afternoon at the zoo and slept very well at night. DO NOT buy rainbow ice-cream cone. It is terrible. We threw them after the first bite. The popcorn is half meter long. We could not finish half of it. :)

  • This zoo may not be the largest but it does have a great diversity of animals ranging from several continents across the world. I always love sering the penguins and I also like seeing the section that houses animals from northern North America. I appreciate being able to contribute to charities to a variety of causes from supporting Pacific Northwest species (which I did) to saving the world's tiger population. All in all, Woodland Park Zoo is a great place to visit for the day.

  • An amazing conservation-focused zoo, always worth revisiting a few times a year. I would definitely say it's a must see on any visit to Seattle for any nature/animal lover. Don't be afraid to chat up the volunteers, they sometimes have fun facts and great stories about the animals!
