Time of year
Really nice that they have an aquarium inside the zoo. Wonderful size for families with small children as they have a cute kids area. Tapirs, Polar bears, sharks and a touch pool in the aquarium were the staff was very knowledgeable about the variety of sea life.
Took our grandson and granddaughter to zoo. Point defiance is beautiful. We had a gorgeous view of mount rainier. The octopus exhibit was really good. We had a wonderful visit. The kids enjoyed the playground area. Good area for kids to run off energy. Great zoo and aquarium
If you want to see the zoo with itnot very many crowds this is the time of year to go. But the flip side of that is some of the animals are not in there areas. But a lot of them are and some of them are even active anyway great family outing.
They have two walrus and they are incredible. Other exhibits are also really well done and the surroundings are beautiful from plants to exhibits. The red wolves are a rare creature to see. I would get a membership if I lived nearby and go often.
We love the zoo and aquarium, they’re beautiful. The kids and us had a wonderful time and we’ll definitely be back soon!
