This park is amazing with each exhibit in separate landscaped areas that bring you closer to their natural environment. It is just outstanding place to spend time!

A large interesting zoo. A lot of the animals I have never seen. Loved getting nose to nose with the crocodile, seeing hippos, bats, and giraffes. The walkway is lush and green and long and hilly. Luckily we could rent a scooter for my friend so she didn't have to walk it with her cane. Some of the animals seem... More

The Oregon Zoo is a wonderful place to take the family, or visitors from out of town. The exhibits are cared for with great love for the animals. Don't miss the Lorrie exhibit. They love to land on visitors and eat nectar out of the little cup you can purchase for not a lot of money. They have concerts in... More

This zoo is a nice size and easy enough to navigate and has all the animals that the kids want to see. I thought it was very reasonably priced compared to other zoos we've visited.

Took the family and went to the Oregon Zoo when they were putting up their light display. At the time not every venue was open but they had hot cocoa, cookies for everybody. It was beautiful seeing the lights and the train ride is wonderful.

The Great Northwest exhibit was worth the price of admission alone ($9.95 per adult less $1.50 for getting there by public transport). Bears, bobcats, a cougar, mountain goats, river otters, condors and bald eagles, all in exhibits that approached their natural habitat. Great to see these magnificent animals and birds, especially having failed to spot any wildlife at all from... More

You can stay here for hours. Nice exhibits and lots of animals. The zoo is connected to Washington Park that connects you to a Japanese Garden and other attractions.
