Oregon Zoo, Portland Reviews - Write a Review
Beautiful zoo. Display areas are thoughtfully designed to provide good habitat for the animals. Educational placards along the way provide information on the various animals and note environmental concerns, status of whether a specific one is endangered or notes progress in restoring a species in the wild. Lots of restrooms, so handy with small children. Walking paths well designed for kids and parents with strollers. Great experience. I don't typically like zoos. This one is very respectful of the animals in their care.
Had an outstanding time here. We chose to do one of the behind the scenes tours. Very informative and got to feed a Sea Otter by hand. The zoo is very nice. It's on the small side, but has a good number of exhibits. I would highly recommend the trip.
We enjoyed the Oregon zoo and the layout of the zoo was great. We were able to see almost every animal out and about. Also the layout made it easy to get pretty close to the animals as well. There were a few of the indoor habitats that could definitely use some deep cleaning or something to try and diminish the odor that was lingering. Other than that though, we would go back and recommend other to visit!
This zoo fully exceeded my expectations. Cheap cover charge ($10 off-season), great array of animals, and the design in general is phenomenal! Terrific spacing of exhibits, the animals are encouraged to sleep right up against the glass! I crouched down a foot away from a resting cheetah. Every kid I saw was having a great time too, great family spot. I have no idea how the average visit time is 45 minutes, I easily spent 3 hours here.
The zoo is really large and will require anywhere from 2-3 hours to view the whole place, a lot of animals to see from all over the world. We went to this zoo right before Christmas last year, and the entire zoo gets lit up with Christmas light as soon as the sun sets. All the animals were out, which made of some really good clicks even though it was quiet chilly on the evening. The zoo is laid out really nicely but does tend to get confusing with all the different trails leading to the different sections of the zoo. You get a see a lot of animals from around the world along with a souvenir shop, restaurant and small canteens within the zoo, good to grab hot drinks and snacks while walking around. More than enough parking at this zoo but its $4 I believe to park. Admission price is really reasonable for the amount of fun you have while in there. Defiantly worth the trip while in Oregon.
