  • We went to the Hoot and Howl event Saturday Oct 21st. The Trick or Treating was scarce at best. 7 different stations passing out the treats. Park had orange lights to direct the path but no other deco...  more »

  • Northwest Trek is part animal park part zoo. In my opinion the animal park, seen during a one hour tram ride is the better part. During the ride you will get to see bison, elk, bighorn sheep, deer, mo...  more »

  • It's a wonderful way to see so many animals that are native to the Northwest. We also rode a Tram where we were able to see animals up close and personal. Sometimes just a few feet away. Our Tram car driver did a excellent job in teaching the passengers about the history of the Park and its animals. It was a another nice way to explore the park, because we could stop anytime we wanted to see a animal. Wonderful place for families!
  • Better than a zoo and paths are a great paved hike. Everything is about habitat and the settings make for natural viewing and better environment for the animals. Downside is the weather, etc., make the animals decide whether or not they want to be active and seen. Cooler is better. 80 degrees when we went so they were not as active but that is not the parks fault. Great venue to see and understand NW wildlife
  • It was a great experience. The ride on the tram around the park was entertaining and comfortable. They don't have air conditioning on the tram, but you can open the windows and majority of the tour is done in the shade you are still comfortable on a hot day. It was 80+ degrees during our visit. The only reason I didn't give them a five star was because I feel some of the habitats for the animals kept in the walking portion of the park could have been bigger. Particularly for the Lynx and the Bobcats and Owls. They don't have much space to roam. Otherwise, it was a great time for myself and my family.
  • Great park. The tram ride was wonderful and the number of wildlife was quite special. This is a fun trip for adults and it appears that kids adore it and have a great time. Lots of walking trails with places to rest too. With the time and money to visit.
  • Great experience for the kids and the whole family. Pack a lunch and eat it within the park. The have a playground with a water feature so if your kids are really into playing in water then be sure to bring sandals and maybe even a change of clothes.
