PDZA's Kids' Zone

Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, Metro Parks Tacoma

Tacoma, WA

For the Kids’ Zone at Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium, it was key to offer a safe and exciting area inside the zoo that emphasized animal education and conservation efforts through interactive games and activities. Our approach applied a storybook aesthetic with colorful, playful exhibits and play structures. A spray park provides a place to cool down by leaping and hopping from lily pad to lily pad. Sustainable design was used throughout.

“BCRA clearly understood early on the importance of the project both to the Zoo and to the community. Indeed, their work has been infused with a sense of community pride throughout. They joined us as a team, understood our desires, and translated that understanding to a functional and pleasing design.”  - John Houck, Deputy Director, Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium
