Woodland Park Zoo reviews
We didn't expect much of this zoo, based on the location in a residential neighborhood, but boy did it pack a punch. What a lovely zoo (much larger than it appears).

Spent four hours here on a rainy day. Great exhibits, but the layout is a bit confusing. We did a lot of back tracking and walking in circles, but that’s a minor complaint. All the exhibits are well..... more

This is a very lovely medium sized zoo. They grounds are very well kept, variety of animals is great, very kid oriented, but adults should have a lot of fun too. The food is not anything truly special, but it is not bad. They have picnic areas for you to use and saw many families using them which is great to see. Lots of viewing areas, and you get really close compared to 98% of other zoos. That is truly what sets this park apart from others. You might not see every animal, but those you do, wow you see great and kids just light up instantly being nose to nose with an orangutan or a leopard looking right at you 10 ft away. Definitely a must visit for tourists and I also see why so many locals are members.
We absolutely LOVE this zoo! I remember going to this zoo when I was a little kid, and now I have been taking my kiddos since they were babies! This is a Great place for absolutely anybody and everybody of all ages. There is So much to see and so much joy and happiness in one place! It really is such a beautiful zoo. There are so many lovely animals, a beautiful flower garden, a fun carousel ride, many food and drink options, places to sit, have a picnic, play structures for the kids to play on and so much more! They have they greatest butterfly exhibit, it is my absolute favorite! All the staff is always so friendly and knowledgeable. One of the things I love about This zoo is that it is such a huge place it doesn’t ever seem crowded. You could spend all day here. The food is pretty expensive, so I suggest packing a lunch, drinks and some snacks and have a picnic to save some money! There are so many great photo and learning opportunities here. You can learn so much together and have tons of fun! A great family friendly adventure and environment.
