Oregon Zoo information
In summer, ride the Zoo Train from the rose gardens to this excellent and beautiful zoo. There's a primate house, a 'penguinarium' and a large African animals area, among many other impressive exhibits. Enclosures are spacious and semi-natural, and big-name concerts take place on the zoo's lawns in summer. But despite its excellence, the zoo is reinventing itself – in future years, a California condor exhibit and an extensive elephant exhibit are set to open (along with others). Hours vary seasonally.
