Welcome to our Zoo!
Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium isn't just a fun place to spend time with friends and family. It's also the only combined zoo and aquarium in the Pacific Northwest, nestled inside the 700-acre Point Defiance Park with views of Mount Rainier and Puget Sound. And with over 550 different animal species, a vintage carousel and Zoolights, there's plenty to explore.
