The Woodland Park zoo is a fantastic place to see wild animals in representations of their native habitat. It is a well laid out zoo, with many newly restored exhibits to give the animals plenty of space to roam. I like going in the winter...More

We where there for an afternoon and went back to see "wildlights". Very fun time. I really like the attention to detail that they put into their inclosures. An afternoon wasn't really enough time. Go all day if you can. Confessions are decent. Don't miss...More

Easy to get to by public transport from Seattle downtown. Has tons of animal exhibits, including the requisite animal feedings. The exhibits seemed well-maintained and animals had lots of space to roam. Nice sized zoo, overall.

This is a beautiful zoo with nice habitats for the animals. A great place that you can easily spend all day at. If you are so inclined there are lots of places to picnic or purchase food.
