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.
nicely layed out zoo
very nicely layed out zoo. the enclosures are large and the animals seemed well taken care of. can easily spend half a day looking around. many different animals to enjoy. recommend if in the area.
I love the one way streets!
Very nice big zoo. My favorite thing is that for the most part, the trails are one way. I love this! Other zoos have you going in circles. I love that there’s plenty of viewing spots so if you don’t see the animal in one part of the enclosure you may see them in another part. The prices in the gift shop were on par with other zoos.
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??
