The Oregon Zoo is located along the MAX light rail line, five minutes from downtown Portland. The zoo is currently showing off a pack of Visayan Warty Pigs, complete with mohawks, in addition to the countless other animals who live there: crocodiles, Asian elephants, giraffes, hippos, monkeys, penguins, snakes, turtles, zebras and the list goes on.
Fun and Clean Zoo
Very fun, clean, and beautiful zoo. Lots of animals and kid activity areas. Able to interact with some animals too. Had a great time.
My family and I really enjoyed the Oregon Zoo. The grounds were beautiful and we saw many animals. It was wonderful seeing the elephants since zoos in our state do not have elephants. The zoo was very clean and it was enjoyable to walk around. We spent hour there and saw so many wonderful exhibits. I have been to many different zoos in the country and this one is my favorite.
I can’t believe the don’t offer more handicap parking and you still have to pay
A Zoo with only 1 Handicap Accessible parking spot in lot! We had 2 people in wheelchairs on top of that we were told we still had to pay for parking even with our decals??
wanted to go in august with grandkids. This is 2023 and we are still required to preorder our dates and times, what happened to being able to go to the zoo when you want to go or have the time. It is time for us to go back to pre covid days, open the zoo up just like OMSI has...I have not been able to take my grandkids to the zoo because I never know when I can take time off work...I am a member, but will not renew this year...waste of my money!
Too many kids
The zoo itself was okay. We arrived early right when it opened because we were told the animals would be hiding when it got too hot outside. What turned me off about my whole experience was all the school trips!! There were probably 5 schools doing trips at the same time. I could not even enjoy myself with all the screaming children. My gf and I slowed down so the kids would be ahead of us but that didn't really work. Maybe I will visit again and hopefully have a better visit
