Loved the spring at the Oregon zoo. Granddaughters were both excited about the animals and loved the elephants

“kids and adults love it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2012

the zoo is a treat- especially on a sunny day but good anytime. During christmas holidays, zoo lights makes it a popular and fun night outing. In summer, they have excellent musical events with big name headliners, and the zoo itself is well run. Train ride is a lot of fun

“Feel good zoo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2012

Zoo's are hard for me to visit after having traveled to Africa and seen many of these animals in the wild but the Oregon Zoo does a good job of attempting to give the animals an enclosure that doesn't feel like a concrete box.

“Oregon Zoo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2012

We spent the day with our grandson and what fun we had. There is an outdoors Birds of Prey show where the birds fly out over the audience seated on a grassy area. A zoo train is available for an additional fee that takes you to Washington Park. Overall a fun experience for adults and children alike!

“Great Zoo!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2012

I make it a once a year visit just to see all the new and old exhitbits. A great deal for a family with children if they buy the yearly pass. I love taking a lunch and watching the different animal shows on the main lawn. Good Times!
