Great zoo with lots of different animals. Perfect walking activity for the whole family. Can be hard to find parking when busy like summer. Public transportation is easy to navigate and inexpensive. Great summer concerts on the lawn as well

Get a wagon so they can flop if they need to, but I'd start at opening and take your time. The raptors, monkeys, bears, elephants and lions were our kiddo's favorites. The fudge at the gift shop will ensure your brood stays in the mood!

Zoo was expensive. I believe $17.95 per person. No student discount for older teens. Most of the animals we were able to see were from afar. We only saw 2 elephants. One was asleep. The other was turned the other way. As were the giraffes....More

Love, love, love the Oregon Zoo. The animals are well treated and their recovery efforts for injured and abused is amazing.

For as much as a zoo that keeps animals in cages can be animal friendly...this one is! You can tell that they really care about their animals. The only animals they house are the ones that can't be released into the wild. I really appreciate...More

I don't know what part of the year but the signs said 2020. The giraffe's are on display now in another exhibit, I didn't see the black rhino's so not sure where they are.

Signs indicate it will be finished sometime in 2020, however I doubt that it will ever be finished. Always something needs updating.
