One of the best zoos for a city the size of Portland. They have improved and expanded all of the exhibits on a regular basis. A bonus is seeing a lot of native Northwest wildlife in setting similar to their natural homes.

Somehow, it's just really well laid-out for a zoo. I don't normally like zoos, but this one was fun to walk though and very beautiful at the same time.

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

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

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.
