Great place for the family. Great enclosures for the animals. Take 3 hours to truly enjoy the experience. Take public transportation for ease of parking on the week-ends.

the oregon zoo is a lot of fun and quite interactive, there a lot of animals there and its really big but don't go there in rainy portland weather, that can but a damper on any outing. food is a bit pricey, but its to be expected, and the train ride is really boring for older kids.

The animals look sad and unhappy. Very poor environment to keep these animals in captivity. Go see the Philadelphia Zoo. Very foolish to create the walking paths up hill. It makes it difficult for the elderly or disabled to walk.

The oregon zoo has made some major much needed improvements over the last few years. Some of the newer exibits are great and up to date. However, the elephant exhibit could use some remodeling as well as the monkeys. There are many animals to see and a lot to do, I really enjoy coming to the zoo.

A fun family tradition has been that my dad has taken my brother and I to see the Zoo lights every year for the past like 15 years. Each year it is a lot of fun to walk around the zoo and see all the lights. There are always some animals out as well. I think maybe changing up some of the lights a little bit each year would be great. However, the overall experience is fun and kids all around seem to enjoy it.

This is a great Zoo, not huge so you can cerainly cover it in a day, but you will get some great glimpses of all your favorites. And don't miss the opportnity to see Sammy the Elephant, he's getting biggerby the day.
