Parking Fee

There is a $5 per vehicle fee for visitors parking in the Zoo lot. The fee is assessed at the ticket windows. Tip: Purchase admission tickets online and add a pre-paid parking ticket for maximum convenience.

Members: If you are planning to purchase a guest ticket for someone who is NOT covered on your membership card, you may want to ride together so your guest can take advantage of your parking benefit. If the guest drives separately, they will be assessed a parking fee at the admission windows with the ticket purchase. See our Frequently Asked Questions for more details.
