“Wonderful day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Me and my husband went to he Oregon Zoo. It Is such a fun place to go. The exhibits are wonderful and I loved the layout of the zoo. There is plenty of benches to sit on an just enjoy the views. There are plently of refreshments all through so you will always have access to beverages or snacks. We will definitely be going back very soon.

“Small but fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Under construction areas were a bummer but it is a nice couple of hours to tour zoo. Most animals were around in the afternoon to see.

“Portlands Amazing Zoo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We have visited many of the major metropolitan zoos and drive through animal viewing parks throughout the United States. Clearly, the Portland Zoo is one of the finest.

Its realtively compact size, combined with its well designed animal enclosures; large variety of animals, reptiles, birds, fish, and plants; readily accessible viewing areas; well informed and courtreous staff and volunteers; periodic specialty demonstrations and shows; reasonalbe costs of food and beverages; clean and well maintained rest rooms; well equiped picnic areas; ample parking; and very low admission costs all combine to offer an ejoyable and educational outing.

We highly recommend the Portalnd Zoo to locals and out-of-town visitors alike!!! It is one of Portland's true gems!!!

But get there early in the morning. As the afternoon warms up, many of the animals get a little lazy!
