Ok, so I've been to a number of zoos in my time, and this is a good one. It has a great feel to the whole space. Lots of trees and greenery so the animal enclosures feel full of nature and even the paths are...More

I love this zoo. They are renovating to make the enclosures more natural for the animals which I think is awesome but it does mean that you might not see an animal or two during construction. I think it's a wonderful project so I am...More

I always enjoy my time at the Oregon Zoo. The animals seem healthy and well cared for. It's a great place to spend a day out with friends or family.

A great focus on the animals of the Pacific Northwest. The walk is pleasant, and animals seem well cared for. Will be great when the polar expansion is done. Take the Tri-Met for a dis pint on your admission.

This zoo overcharging for the animals they have( 3 bears, 3 elephants, 1 monkey, knock off llama). Many of the exhibits are closed. The every hour bird show is minimal entertainment but most exciting exhibit is the vultures eating the deer. Save your money do...More

The amazing animals, plenty of places to sit and rest. The zoo is huge. Try to get there early or later afternoon. I missed some animals because they had just been fed and were napping. Parking is difficult to find if you have bad timing...More

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!

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.
