Senior Safari Welcomes Seniors to the Oregon Zoo

Presented by Oregon Eye Specialists, PC and Providence Medicare Advantage, this year's Senior Safari is a special event for visitors 65 and older who may bring a guest and get free admission to the zoo between 9:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

Senior citizens will take over the zoo grounds on Tuesday, September 18, where they can enjoy free train rides and access to all the zoo has to offer without paying a thing. They can check out keeper talks and animal encounters and wave hello to some of the zoo's distinguished elders, such as Borris the leopard, Eddie the sea otter and Mik the tiger, along with some of the newer ones, such as tiny goats Ruth and Sonya.

Senior Safari is a great opportunity for older folks to get some fresh air and exercise, learn about how the zoo is creating a better future for wildlife, spend quality time with elephants or visit the new sculpture garden.

Folks from Oregon Eye Specialists will be at the event offering free eyeglass adjustments and educating visitors about eye diseases that may impact seniors as they age. Visit with folks from Providence Medicare Advantage Plans for fun giveaways and helpful information on Medicare coverage.

Zoomer shuttles will be running all day to assist guests with transport, and Providence employees will be at the event to assist wheelchair users.

Parking costs $2/hour or $8/day and lots tend to fill up quickly in the summer, 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.
