The first phase of Woodland Park Zoo’s new Bamboo Forest Reserve, with Asian small-clawed otters, tropical aviary, kids’ nature play area and the zoo’s new twin sloth bear cubs, opens on May 4.

Opening day celebrations will include crafts, bouncy houses, music by local favorite Johnny Bregar, performance, games and giveaways from Radio Disney, and a free Otter Pop when you purchase a kid’s meal at the Rain Forest Food Pavilion.

The kids’ play area includes a wobbly bridge and mini zipline.
