    Treat your family to a special day at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium. Where else can you see sea lions, hammerhead sharks, red wolves, muskox, penguins, stingrays, and an elephant all in one place? The 29-acre Zoo is large enough to offer an awesome array of animals yet small enough to let you get really close to them. Who knows? You might run into a lynx on your way to see a Sumatran tiger! Be sure to visit Kids' Zone. This fanciful exhibit engages children in active learning through play. The focus is on fun, movement and learning what animals need to thrive. The breathtaking views of Puget Sound, Mount Rainier and the Olympic Mountains are free - and so is the parking. So what are you waiting for? Bring your family to see ours. Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium is open at 9 a.m. daily. Closing times vary. Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium is just minutes off of I-5 in beautiful Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, WA. See more..

My husband and I read the postings around the displays, enjoyed the sea life in the tanks, and relaxed. Well worth the $5 family fee! Good way to spend about 45 minutes. See more..
