I love treating my grandchildren to Cougar Mountain Zoo. It's perfect with children because it's small, walkable, interesting, educational, and you don't have to commit to an entire day for them to experience wildlife. The employees are available to answer questions and direct attention to special events taking place on the grounds.
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.
This zoo is different from any other that I've been to. It is small and there is a good feeling about it.

The shows were about every half and hour. The Bengal tigers were incredible. The parking is free. Microsoft Prime gives a $2 discount per person.
I have lived within 10 miles of The Cougar Mountain Zoo my entire life (50 years) and this was my first visit. I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of animals and the accessibility and access to view them closely. We visited on a Sunday afternoon and nearly had the place to ourselves. It's an outstanding, top notch facility offering... 更多
As other reviewers have noted, this isn't a big zoo but the small size and well-trained, young staff allows for an excellent opportunity to interact in a quality way with the animals. Shows in the park are short but very informative (and stress conservation with some solicitation of contributions). After this day's tiger show we had the opportunity to interact... 更多
