The Zoo was founded in 1888 & is Oregon's largest paid attraction. In 1962 Packy, the first elephant born in the Western Hemisphere in 44 years, was born. He is the tallest Asian elephant in the US.
Nothing beats a timeless, family-friendly trip to the zoo. Come meet otters, lions, apes, snakes, elephants, and many more. Don't forget to bring a camera for up close shots of creatures of the wild!
Don't pet the lions, tigers or polar bears. The goats are fine.
In the summer you can enjoy their Summer Concert Series!
