Woodland Park Zoo
Woodland Park Zoo is an award-winning zoo and a must to visit. Only minutes from busy downtown, the zoo let's you step into an African savanna, an Asian elephant habitat, and a tropical rain forest. The zoo also brings special exhibits, which have included monitor dragons, butterflies, and other bugs and beasts. Bring a picnic to enjoy on the green lawns of Woodland Park , which surrounds the zoo. You also won't want to miss the nearby Rose Garden .
Great Zoo! We have been there about 5 times and have loved every minute. There are tons of natural looking exhibits with great views of the animals. We especially enjoyed the raptor demonstration. There is lots of construction going on that will make a great zoo even better.
I love how most of the animals are in a natural setting instead of cages. This is a really good zoo for taking photographs of animals.
My favorite exhibits are the lions and the noctural exhibits.
A zoo membership is a better deal in the long run instead of purchasing individual tickets especially since you can also use it at most other zoos in the country.
Woodland Park Zoo is a Great Place. The set up is very attractive and maintained. Easy to locate Exibits and Attractions. People and Employees are friendly. The only dislike is the parking availability is scarce and tight.
My kids and I enjoy the zoo very much. One time when they were little the giraffes were being moved and they walked across a path right in front of us! It was so cool! Our two year old was riding on his dads shoulders and he was a little nervous but loved every second of it. Always a fun place to visit!
The extraordinary and diverse exposition will never bore neither adults nor kids.
Close encounters with wildlife are guaranteed
in many corners of the "world" built in the zoo, and in "the farm" are even encouraged.
Usually, you can limit your daily experience to a few large expos, unless you plan to spend the whole day in the zoo - it's huge.
I liked the variety of animals and habitats. We went in the afternoon, so we didn't have enough time to enjoy everything. Next time we will go in the morning. Bring your own lunch and snacks if you are bringing a large group. It could get expensive.
My daugther's and my experience at the Woodland Park Zoo surpased all other zoo trips we've ever taken! We started out at the African Hut, which my daughter and I found to be so fascinating, we could just imagine how that particular tribe lives in such a dwelling and what their lives might be like. We moved on to the Aquarium where we saw Sea Otters, so adorable and I think they know it. I think the best thing about the Woodland Park Zoo is that the animals appear to be in their own environments. The Zoo has done a marvelous job of similating the natural habitats of each different specie. I loved seeing the wolves, it really brings out the Native American in me to see all the animals so free to be their instinctive selves!:) My daugther's favorite was the white owl perched so majestically upon a branch. We got caught up in torrential rains, and found refuge where the Eagles reside at the Zoo. The Eagles home at the Zoo has nothing seperating them from the humans, no glass, no fence, so as we sat under the awnings in the seats directly facing the Eagles, I was never so intimated by a bird in my life, but I was absolutely in awe. We saw Brown Bears, we made our way to the Gorrillas, and after viewing many other animals, we ended our excursion at the Zoo's gift shop, where my daughter picked out a long stuffed snake to take home, and a bear mask! It's definitely time to go back. Animals remind us of the simplicity and serenity of life, we all need to be reminded of that at times.
We enjoyed all the exhibits and how easy it was to figure out where we were. My son enjoyed watching the monkeys play around. He also enjoyed seeing the elephants and giraffes. It was great to take my parents there for part of their vacation tourist experience. We can't wait to have the time to go back!
