Today at the zoo

The Oregon Zoo is reopening July 12!

We can't wait to welcome you back. Learn more.


As a nonprofit organization, the zoo relies on ticket sales, memberships and donations to operate. For anyone looking to help, the biggest way to make a difference right now is to become a member, renew your membership or make a donation. Your support now is more important than ever.

Construction or accessibility notes

    • The zoo train and carousel are temporarily closed for the safety of our guests and staff
    • Animal habitats closed while we complete the final community-funded Primate Forest, Polar Passage and Rhino habitat. Learn more about the new habitats and the other bond-funded projects.

Parking and transit options

Guests are encouraged to ride MAX to the zoo, especially during busy weekends and event days.

All Washington Park attractions use a Pay-to-Park system; for more parking information please visit Explore Washington Park's parking guide, or Getting to ZooLights.
