We always take visiting friends (especially with kids) to the gigantic Woodland Park Zoo. It has loads of free parking. Give yourself 2-3 hours to wander about because it is vast ... with acreage for bears (see them close-up swatting at trout through big viewing windows), plus a preserve for orangutan with great elevating viewing points. Don't miss the Butterfly House. Also, try to catch one of the live music concerts held during the summer months!
