Howdy, neighbors

Woodland Park Zoo has been an urban oasis for the community since 1899. Our collection of animals, commitment to sustainability and dedication to wildlife conservation make it a very special place for families to reconnect and recharge. The zoo’s picturesque location on Phinney Ridge, along with continued support from our neighbors, truly sets us apart from other city assets. 

We value our relationship with the community and are committed to being a good neighbor. Please check back often to stay current on the zoo’s events, exhibits and projects, especially those of particular interest to the neighborhood.
