National ZOO

National Zoo
  • Yellow Loop

Sited on 163 wooded acres along the slopes of Rock Creek Park, the 120-year-old Smithsonian National Zoological Park is one of the most scenic zoos in the country. The Zoo has undergone a lot of improvements lately. In 2006, a $53 million eco-friendly Asia Trial opened to rave reviews, expanding outdoor habitats for sloth bears, fishing cats, red pandas, clouded leopards, Asian small-clawed otters and, of course, the giant pandas.
