The Oregon Zoo will mark Veterans Day 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.
In addition, the zoo store is offering a 10 percent discount and all zoo food outlets are offering a 25 percent discount for veterans, active military personnel and their families, with proper identification.
To receive free admission November 11 and 12, 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: Take MAX Light Rail to the Washington Park stop or a TriMet bus. Call 503-238-RIDE (7433) or visit trimet.org for fare and route information.
