Day at the Oregon Zoo

Fantastic zoo, If in Portland, Oregon this is a must see trip. Very easy to get to from any of our freeways. I enjoy our zoo as much as I enjoy the San Diego zoo.

Zoo was great. It rained on and off but plenty of places to take cover. Didn't get to see all animals as some were not out.

I live in the Bay Area and have been to beautiful zoos around California but this Zoo was the best I have ever been to. It was even raining on the day we went but we were still able to see most of the animals. My favorite exhibit was the elephants! A must do while visiting Portland.

This is a fun zoo. Its well planned out for the animals and easy to get around by walking or taking the zoo train. There are many activities planned throughout the year, restaurant and food carts and a grassy park area to sit in, Its easy to park.

Both of our young adult children have visited several times and rave about it. They have done a fair amount of travelling in the US since they were young and have visited other zoo's in bigger cities but they say this is the best! Well laid out, informative, well cared for.

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!
