Forest For All Experience WPZ

Review Status

On May 5, 2022 we reviewed the concept phase (30% design) for the Forests for All Exhibit project. At this meeting, we voted to approve the concept design and provided several recommendations. The project will be reviewed again at the schematic design (60%) phase.

Project Description

Woodland Park Zoo is proposing to redevelop a 1.2-acre site within the Zoo’s gated area for a new exhibit - Forests for All. Until 2016, the site was the location of the Zoo’s Day and Night Exhibits. The structure housing those exhibits suffered significant fire damage and is no longer operable. The new Forests for All exhibit will expand Woodland Park Zoo’s efforts to highlight global conservation. The site is located just east of the West Entrance and the Penguin Exhibit, along the main loop trail.
