Spring Break Zoo Madness

Since all the kiddies were out of school on spring break, I thought, why not visit the zoo? Oregon Zoo’s Spring Break Party runs through April 2nd. The zoo schedule brings you lions, penguins, polar bears, ocelots and elephants.

Tips You Should Know:

  1. Parking is atrocious (and costs $2). Yes, you can park further away and use the shuttle, but the MAX is so convenient; just take the Washington Park exit and elevator up.
  2. The parking shuttle (if you use it) and the zoo are not stroller or wheelchair friendly.
  3. Another benefit of riding the MAX: you get a $1.50 off admission at the gate.
  4. Children aged two and under are admitted free of charge.
  5. On the second Tuesday of every month you can visit the zoo for the discounted price of $2 per person; better than the usual $10.50 per adult and $7.50 per youth, right?
  6. Portland Perks has a 20% off admission coupon.
  7. Kids love ZooKeys. They cost $2.50 and you can use the same one each time you visit. Listen to zoo facts in English or Spanish.
  8. And, as always: wear good walking shoes, dress in layers, and bring water and snacks.
