Parking and Free Shuttle

The Zoo’s Medical Center entrance will not be open, so be sure to go to the main entrance. Lots near the Zoo’s main entry fill quickly. A later arrival (8 p.m. rather than 6 p.m.) may improve your parking options.

On Prime nights, as well as Wednesday November 25 and Thursday November 26 (Thanksgiving Day), an additional parking option is our overflow lot at 7100 William C. Harvin – Entrance 35. Parking is $10 per car. Free shuttle, easy in, easy out! Last parking entry at 9 p.m.

You can catch METRORail at the Fannin South Park & Ride lot (1604 West Bellfort) Ride to the Hermann Park/Rice U Station (at Fannin and Sunset) and walk through the park to our main entrance.

Here is a map of all the Hermann Park parking lot areas, including the lot in front of the Zoo.
