Wildlights at the Woodland Park Zoo

Come and enjoy an evening with friends, grab a cup of hot coco or coffee and walk thru the dazzling images that the Zoo has produced for us.
Our Zoo has stepped up and finally giving us a nice Christmas light show, hopefully we'll still see a few night critters .
Everyone and anyone is invited, to this event open to all.
Hours of operation is 5:30 - 8:30 we are only allowed to view the light show and some of the animal exhibit’s the big wildlife areas will most likely be off limits.
The price for adults is 8:50 kids 6:50.
We can carpool down to the zoo by meeting at two different park and rides giving everyone a chance to come along.
Ash way park&ride
164th street
Lynnwood

Marysville Ash Avenue P&R 
[masked]th Street, Marysville, WA

Let’s meet at one of these two park & rides at 5pm everyone that RSVP please say which park & ride you can meet at and whether you would like to drive. Please be on time so we can get moving to the Zoo.
I’ll be at the Ash way park & ride at the southern section. I’m leaving the Marysville group to correspond and figure out where everyone can meet.

Please remember this is cold rainy wet season so bring everything warm to wear as we walk thru the park.

    Hey Everyone, I'll be at the Lynwwood P&R and I can fit 3 more for the trip.
    Anyone coming from Marysville? Speak up so we know hows up there waiting to get a ride.
    I updated the directions to the zoo and parking. I plan to be in the South lot off 50th. street.
    Everyone lets meet inside the main entrance under the big sign in the plaza.
    Please take my number so you can call me if needed.

    This is a smaller zoo event only the night time critter exhibit is open.
    This is more about the Lights and doing the natural sipping coffee thing under our unbrellas.

    One of our members works there at the zoo and has informed me where to meet once we get there.They said the following, There is a big Wildlights sign inside the plaza after paying, where we can meet. There are some cement benches close by. If it is raining we can meet in the zoo store which is close to the sign also.
    Let's take the advice and meet there around 5:30-6pm stragglers can call.
