The woodland park zoo is truly a top notch zoo. My favorites theses days are the short clawed otters, the snow leopard cub, the jaguar and the bears. So much too see.

This city zoo is a treasure when visiting Seattle. Well laid out, and many animals displayed in interesting settings. Great place for all ages, and young children can see many animals due to a great viewing setup for them.

I wasn't expecting so much! It was well laid out and easy to navigate. It was great to see so many animals I have never seen before. We will return to see more.

Fun zoo. They have now a cute baby gorilla and a baby giraffe. Plenty of exhibits to keep your family busy for a couple of hours. Parking is easy but costs.
