  • First time visiting NW Trek. Our 2 year old grandson was visiting and this seemed like a good excursion for him. The weather was perfect, cool in the morning when we took the tram ride and warmer when we were just walking around. We saw all the hooved animals on the tram ride and he was very excited. Unfortunately he's still too young to really enjoy the Kids Trek area. We'll definitely return the next time we have visitors. It's really nice that they don't charge for parking which do many entertainment places do. A real plus.
  • This place has grown in the past 20 years. Much bigger than I remember as a kid, which is saying something. Most places you revisit as an adult seem smaller. There used to only be owls and foxes when I was a child, now they have wolves and bears and lynx and river otters. The discovery center no longer has an active beehive, but it has many different engagement areas for kids. The play park is great! The tram ride has many more animal species and bigger herds. Bring food for a picnic, there are lots of tables to sit for lunch. Strollers are available for rent. Restrooms, water fountains, and trash/recycling cans are found throughout the park. Only improvements would be more exhibits, more space for captive animals, and less "closed" exhibits. Despite the price ($23 per adult), this is a great place to spend a spring/summer day with the fam in the south sound.
