Plan Your Visit

We encourage General Admission guests to purchase parking online in advance (Oakland Zoo members do not need to reserve parking in advance). Upon arrival, General Admission guests will be asked to present their pre-purchased parking passes to a cashier (do not leave it in your car). If you do not have a parking pass when you arrive, you will be asked to purchase one prior to entry.

We encourage our guests to alleviate traffic and parking challenges around the Zoo by taking public transportation or ride-share services.
