“A fun time”
Reviewed 7 August 2005

My husband and I live in the Seattle area, but just recently went to the zoo when some visitors came to town. Searching to entertain 2 children ages 4 and 8, we went to the zoo and had a great time. Big hits included the butterfly garden, the aviary (although these exhibits have a separate admission price once you are in the zoo). The only thing we wish we had done differently was to bring a picnic lunch. We came in through the north gate, and shortly after entering, we saw a large grassy area where some people were having picnics.

“The best zoo in washington”
Reviewed 25 July 2003

Woodland Park Zoo is the best zoo in Washington. Its wide variety of animals takes visitor's breath away. A perfect place for any animal lover. The exhibits are wonderful, and the animals there look very well taken care of and happy. I give this zoo a 5 out of 5 and rate it the best zoo in Washington. You must go to this zoo! You will never regret it!
