Today was the first time I ever visited the zoo, even though I've lived in the area since 1999. Have I been missing out! I absolutely loved it and so did the family. I only set aside 2 hours to visit and I wish I'd set aside 4 or 6 because we had...

Love the Woodland Park Zoo! I have gone to so many field trips and family outings here and I also went here for an anniversary a year ago. The best time to go is on a cloudy day, that's when all the animals come out and there's also less people, which is probably why the anim...

This zoo is heart-grabbingly wonderful.  It was designed with animal's in mind.  The exhibits mimic the animal's natural habitat's, thus they are a lot more active than in other animal parks we have been to. I would not mind if my group just left me with the Penguins as I could gladly watch their antics all day.  Still, there are so many amazing animals to see...from Tapirs to Tigers to Falcons. You can even help to feed some animals (like the Penguins!) and chat with keepers. The grounds are beautiful also.  My husband is not someone who would normally pay attention to landscaping, but he was blown away by the quality of paths and gardens.  A very uplifting, interactive place to spend the day, just make sur...

On Aug. 24th, Syuzy & I went to the zoo with seven (7) kids.  It cost around $78 for entry.  We spent an additional $66 for lunch.  Not too bad for such a large party. This zoo is so much better than the L A Zoo.  Here's the new order: (1) Woodland Zoo (2) Phoenix Zoo (3) San Diego Zoo (4...

Impressive! We recently went to Point Defiance Zoo and it was not nearly as well maintained as Woodland. Woodland is fun! A great destination day trip t...

When we approached the zoo, our hopes were low. The entrance was small and unassuming, and having entered to the entrance hub, there wasn't a lot to see. As we went through the (strangely deserted) African village to look over the giraffe area, our hearts lifted. By the time we had walked counter clockwise to the tigers, we were hooked. There were just so many animals to see, including many that my zoo-loving family has never seen, such as wolves and elk. The exhibits were all very modern and beautiful. Having grown up in San Diego, it's common to think that we have the best zoo, but considering the value (especially with CityPass), variety, and number of exhibits, the Woodland Park Zoo trounces SD's offerin...

It was Sunday and busy with lots of booger-eating children, but it was large enough to accommodate all and I still enjoyed myself. The layout is great and everybody gets gr...

We never really had a need to go to the zoo unless we were hosting nieces and/or nephews and needed to keep them occupied for an afternoon.  I like seeing animals as much as the next person, but I'd prefer to see them in wild whenever possible. Now that my son is getting old enough to enjoy a few hours in the zoo, we're finding ourselves visiting much more frequently.  So much so we bought an annual pass just so we can avoid the ticket lines (we can take advantage of the Prime card discount admission).  Besides, buying a pass for the zoo is way cheaper than shelling out thousands for another trip to Africa to look at animals. While our son isn't old enough to express a desire to see any particular animals ye...
