One of Portland’s most popular attractions just became more accessible to our community. The Oregon Zoo has launched new discounted admission for qualifying visitors.
Since the Oregon Zoo reopened to the public, there have been new measures in place to keep visitors safe. One of those measures is online only ticket sales with timed entry.
Visitors who participate in income assistance programs can get up to 4 tickets to the zoo for $9 each online, and must bring Oregon or Washington photo ID and documentation showing they participate in any of the following programs:
- Oregon Trail card
- Washington Quest Card
- Medicaid/CHIP (e.g., Oregon Health Plan, Apple Care)
- WIC – eWIC card
- Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
While this deal has been shared as half-price admission, that only applies to adult tickets. The price is $9 for adults (reg. $17.95), $9 for kids 3-11 (reg. $12.95), and kids 2 and under are always free. To get this discount applied to your online ticket purchase, access the ticketing page here.
Parking is not included in the discounted admission price. Parking fees are an hourly rate of $2 per hour with a $8 daily maximum. Also, SNAP credit on the Oregon Trail Card or Washington Quest Card cannot be used to buy tickets or purchase food inside the zoo.
The Oregon Zoo is currently open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on weekdays and from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends. Before you plan your visit to the zoo, make sure you know about the current safety measures in place.
