New Weekend Parking Option This Spring

During spring break, the Houston Zoo offered additional parking for all its guests and animal enthusiasts. Now the additional parking is offered Saturdays & Sundays through May 31. The lot is located at 7100 William C. Harvin – Entrance 35. Parking is $6 per car, but the shuttle is free and runs continuously from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. to the zoo. Early birds: park in the lots outside the zoo to enter at 9 a.m., right when doors open.



Free parking is available outside the zoo’s main entrance on Hermann Park Drive. These free parking lots are part of Hermann Park and are not owned or operated by the zoo.

On busy days, these lots can fill quickly, but more parking may be available in other Hermann Park lots. For more information about other parking areas and directions to the zoo, visit

Remember that every time you visit the Houston Zoo, you help save animals in the wild. So we hope to see you soon!
