Project Overview

The Asian Tropical Forest exhibit is an exciting attraction for people of all ages at the Woodland Park Zoo. Visitors can get up close to see the otters as they swim and climb around their new home. Pacific Studio created an entire environment: constructing and installing a beautiful steel barrier wall, which protects the otter habitat, and fabricating bamboo-themed structures and interpretive signage throughout the space to give visitors the feeling they are visiting a bamboo forest reserve in Malaysia. Children go wild for the new outdoor play area Pacific Studio built and installed within this dynamic exhibit. With opportunities to climb through a bamboo obstacle course and glide along the zip line, this unique play structure is often the highlight for families visiting the zoo.
