The Oregon Zoo

10 minutes away
The Zoo has been inspiring a better future for wildlife from its current home for 50 years (and connecting people with animals for 122 years)! In 1959, the Portland Zoological Gardens helped the state celebrate its centennial by opening at its current location with a brand-new railway and lots of colorful "modern" design accents. At that time, the zoo was at the very edge of town, with mostly wilderness beyond it. On November 1, 1959, the main approaches to the zoo from Canyon Road had just been paved. Thousands of school children came as part of their curriculum. Zoo admission was 35 cents.

World Forestry Center

Our 20,000 square foot museum is located in Portland's beautiful Washington Park. Built in dramatic Cascadian style architecture, you'll marvel at the intricate hand carvings and grand entry outside, and delight in hands-on, one-of-a-kind exhibits inside. The first floor of our museum focuses on forests of the Pacific Northwest and the role they play in providing habitat, water, recreation, wood, and a multitude of other benefits. The second floor of our museum is divided into two major sections. One half of the space is devoted to temporary exhibits that explore art, history and culture from around the world. The other half explores forests around the world and their connections to people. Families and school groups will find exhibits that pique curiosity and encourage active learning. This is a must-see attraction for anyone who lives in the Pacific Northwest or is visiting from out of town.
