The Woodland Park Zoo is an AZA accredited institution that does tons of work in conservation and species preservation, and boasts impressively expansive enclosures. Sometimes, this means that you'll have to squint to see the lions—but it also means that the zoo is putting lots of effort into creating a hospitable environment for their animals. While you're there, make sure to check out the rose garden.
