First of all, if you visit the Woodland Park Zoo, you must remember that you have to have at least one day to be able to see most of the animals, insects, birds, gardens, African houses, etc.
Second, you have to bring a good camera (bring a zoom lense to be better), extra -batteries, wear comfortable shoes, pack plenty of water if you visit during the summer time, and tons of energy!
Third, always ask for a zoo map so you can plan where to go first and saves you time.
When we visited the Woodland Park Zoo, we basically went to every cage and every designated places. My husband and daughter Sierra enjoyed our one day trip at this zoo!
Woodland Park Zoo is a zoological garden in Seattle, Washington that is basically surviving right now because of the generous donations from Seattle residents, corporations and from the sale of tickets. This 188 acre zoo was bought by the city for $5,000 and was established in 1899.
