Zoolights 2014

Bundle up and stroll the Zoo as it comes aglow with more than a half-million lights! Be inspired by dazzling animal-themed displays, including our brand new 3-D displays of a swooping bald eagle, a regal polar bear family, and a Sumatran tiger head. Warm up in the steamy South Pacific Aquarium, ride a camel or take a spin on the antique carousel. There's so much to see and do--make the most of your Zoolights experience with our list of Zoolights Top 10 Fun Activities!

'Tis the season to recycle.

PDZA is teaming up with Girl Scouts of Western Washington once again for the Holiday Lights Recycling Program! We hope to keep thousands of strings of lights out of the landfill. Drop off your broken or unused holiday lights at one of the designated bins.

Give the perfect gift!

Share the magic and excitement of the Zoo this season with a membership, an animal adoption, or an unforgettable Eye-to-Eye Shark Dive! Read more about unique holiday gift ideas from Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium.
