Woodland Park Zoo


Woodland Park Zoo is hailed as one of the finest zoos in the world for its award-winning naturalistic exhibits. Nearly 300 animal species from around the world and a thousand plant species are displayed in the 92-acre botanical setting. Meet a mob of meerkats and get an inside look at the animals’ semi-arid savanna habitat. Discover Humboldt penguins not from a land of ice, but from a desert by the sea as they “fly” underwater, splash and dive in a new, state-of-the-art exhibit. Go nose-to-nose with a jaguar in a tropical rain forest. Observe a group of gorillas foraging for food. Come eye-to-eye with orangutans living atop trees in an open forest canopy. Enjoy a herd of elephants meandering rolling terrain in a Thai village. Safari to Africa for sweeping views of giraffes, zebras, hippos and monkeys. Trek to the north for underwater views of grizzly bears and otters. Go Down Under for a fun bird feeding experience at Willawong Station (additional fee for seasonal feeding). Explore, climb and slide in Zoomazium’s nature play space for kids 8 and under. Take a ride on a historic carousel (additional fee), and stop and smell the roses in a glorious Rose Garden. Discover the natural wonders of wildlife and the zoo’s myriad conservation efforts through a variety of engaging programs such as keeper talks, day camps, classes, horticultural tours and Real Close tours. Touch the quills of a porcupine or examine the pelts of furry critters at discovery stations throughout the zoo. Naturally inspiring, Woodland Park Zoo is located just minutes from downtown Seattle. Admission fees vary seasonally.
