Hello, Portlanders. Elephant Lands at the Oregon Zoo is now officially open to the public. The new area for the elephants is about four times the size of their former habitat. Elephant Lands now accounts for almost 10% of the zoo’s 64-acre footprint. A cool feature Portlanders will love is the new bridge that overlooks the six-acre Elephant Lands. The panoramic view is awesome.
The family and I went to the Sunset at the Zoo event last week. It was the last Sunset at the Zoo event for this year. We had an awesome time. The kids went to the Oregon Zoo a couple of weeks earlier, but they said they had more fun at Sunset at the Zoo. It’s easy to see why. In addition to the animals, there were music and all sorts of fun activities going on. The kids even got to hang out with a princess. If you never been to Sunset at the Zoo, you should definitely go next year.
