The cats were especially interesting. The viewer could get close enough to appreciate these magnificent predators. Lots of family activities available also. The grounds are small but well planned.

this is a great family zoo. Small so you just need a couple of hours. The enclosures are large and natural and the animals are beautifully cared for. The main attraction are the Bengal Tigers and the Cougars. In the winter the reindeer festival is great fun. They also have alpacas and other small animals that one can hand feed. Very nice place and well managed.

Such a great little zoo to bring the kids to. It is a much easier outing than either Point Defiance or Woodland Park and my kids seem just as happy to go here. I think it is best for families with young children, and hopefully your kids aren't expecting elephants or lions. They CAN see cougars, tigers, tons of parrots, macaws, interesting birds, lemur, etc. The best part is that they can purchase feed for some of the deer and other animals. That is an experience you can't get everywhere. Check it out! I had a birthday party there for one of my boys and it was a fabulous party for the 4 or 5 year old age. Spendy, but different and well-run.

We are members and go several times a year and enjoy it very much. The animals are well cared for and the staff are really friendly and chat with you about the animals.

This is a small zoo but very nice for the family, especially with young children. The Reindeer Festival during Christmas is terrific and a must see.
