Our zoo is one of the top rated zoos in the world. It's not the biggest, or flashiest zoo out there, but it is full of quality and they keep up-dating the exhibits to give not only the animals a better place to live, but to give us a better educational experience and emmersive environment from which to learn. EVERY time we go, we see something different, and we go a lot. I'm very proud of our wonderful zoo!!!

I'm not a big zoo fan, but I spent an afternoon at Woodland Park Zoo with my kids and we had a blast. It is very large and you can get a lot of exercise while seeing the exhibits.

I have been here several times and must say it is one of the better zoos I have visited. For starters there are many animals here. From kangaroos to zebras to lions almost every animal you want to see is here. If you go during the week, during school days there is plenty of space to see without having to fight with people. From the outside it seems like the zoo is well ran and the animals well cared for. There is a carousel in the middle that is very fun to ride. I haven't ate or drank anything so I can't vouch for that, but the exhibits are wonderful and the price affordable.

Spent a solid 4.5 hours here on Feb. 19, 2012. Overall I really like this zoo and the lay-out. The only one disappointment is that because of the enclosures being so open, there were mayny animals that we didn't get to see...or maybe a tuft of fur peeking out over a hill.

Overall a very fun day!
