Woodland Park Zoo
Woodland Park Zoo Review
Ninety-two acres are divided into bioclimatic zones here, allowing many animals to roam freely in habitat areas. A jaguar exhibit is the center of the Tropical Rain Forest area, where rare cats, frogs, and birds evoke South American jungles. The Humboldt penguin exhibit is environmentally sound—it uses geothermal heating and cooling to mimic the climes of the penguins' native home, the coastal areas of Peru. With authentic thatch-roof buildings, the African Village has a replica schoolroom overlooking animals roaming the savanna; the Asian Elephant Forest Trail takes you through a Thai village; and the Northern Trail winds past rocky habitats where brown bears, wolves, mountain goats, and otters scramble and play. Zoomazium is a nature-themed indoor playspace for toddlers and young kids, and the Woodland Park Rose Garden (free; located near the zoo's south entrance) is always a hit.
