Management of Woodland Park Zoo for the next 20 years. Public Comment Opportunity

Background: The 20 year contract under which the private Zoo Society manages all aspects of Woodland Park Zoo and the North 59th St. Playground was approved by the City Council on December 13, 2021.

The final agreement reflects some of the amendments that were proposed by a coalition of community councils representing Phinney Ridge, Fremont, Wallingford and Green Lake. One significant amendment was to ensure that the final approval of the future Zoo Long Range Plan will reside with the City Council. We will continue to work to realize the intent of the Agreement with respect to the "special relationship" between the zoo and its surrounding neighborhoods. Amended Agreement link below.
