I love taking my preschool class here because everyone pays their own way. I'd love to have a birthday party here but it's so expensive for such a small zoo.

This zoo is perfect for little kids, but it's fun for older ones too. It's one of your favorite places to visit in Issaquah. My daughter loves the macaw and the sculptures are great!

This is one of our favorite places to visit when we come to the area to see our grandchildren. The zoo is small enough for the young ones to navigate and offers interesting exhibits. You can see just about everything in a 2 hour visit.
