Woodland Park Zoo has won more Best National Exhibit awards from the Association of Zoos & Aquariums than any other zoological institution except the Bronx Zoo in New York. It has long been a pioneer in the field of immersion exhibits: Woodland Park Zoo created what is generally considered the world’s first immersion exhibit, a gorilla habitat, which opened in the late 1970’s.

For more than 110 years, Woodland Park Zoo has been a cherished community resource and a unique urban oasis. Generations of Puget Sound families have come to the zoo to marvel at the animals and be inspired by the peaceful and beautiful surroundings. The zoo spans 92 acres, 65 of which are developed as exhibits and public spaces.

Friendly Staff, Gravel Path

Most of the major attraction animals (cougars, tigers, wolves) are accessible via paved paths, and staff was friendly and helpful. They opened gates that had been closed for Covid to give me an easier path. I wasn’t the only person there in a wheelchair that day either! On the other hand, getting down to the birds in particular involved some steep hills and gravel paths that were pretty hard to navigate. Unless you can walk short distances or wheel rougher terrain, you’re going to have to miss out on the birds.
