The Oregon Zoo will mark Veterans Day on November 11 by offering free admission for military veterans and active military personnel, as well as family members who accompany them to the zoo. Families of deployed military personnel also will be given free admission.
To receive free admission, visitors must show a military or veteran organization ID, discharge papers or other official military identification; families of deployed military personnel must show an active duty ID.
Parking costs $2/hour or $8/day and lots tend to fill up quickly, so the zoo encourages visitors to take public transport, like taking MAX Light Rail to the Washington Park stop or a TriMet bus. Call 503-238-RIDE (7433) or visit Trimet for fare and route information.
