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 .
Was the experience fun? Yes, I love seeing animals in small cages and pens. It makes me appreciate my own freedom.
Would you recommend it to others? Yes, but only if they don't mind the sad expressions on the faces of the animals.
Was it worth the time/money? Yes, I don't have to fly to Africa now that I've seen the fake little village the zoo keeps set up for me.
Our family went and we were not that impressed. In the exibits there were not that many animals in view. There were no penguins at all. I would say for the price they charge our family would not be going back any time soon. We did however love the butterfly exibit.
Do you have an Ant Eatter??
I have a friend that has a large ant mound in her yard. Can you use they? She never spays nor does anything that would harm the wild life. The ant mound is growing bigger every week. She is old and lives along, and she is handycapped.
My Daddy takes me to your zoo every summer. I live close to the zoo in Tacoma and go there a lot.
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.
The Woodland Park Zoo provides an exotic escape from the city into luscious up close and personal exhibits. There are so many paths to choose from and a variety of shows and snack shops along the way. I enjoyed a refreshing Icee as I watched the penguins swim about. Then I enjoyed lunch with my friends under the shade of trees in a picnic area as we mapped out our next adventure.
There�s something new and exciting around every corner. The animals are striking as they roam their personalized habitats, resembling the culture where they originated. Woodland Park Zoo is a great escape, where you can become a kid again as you travel from exhibit to exhibit; excited to see what�s next. Or take a leisurely stroll and spend all day enjoying the sites and company of friendly zoo goers.
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.
