Thank you everyone for another magical Zoo Lights! See you next year!

Directions and Parking

Our main entrance is at 6200 Hermann Park Drive, Houston, Texas 77030. The Zoo’s Medical Center entrance will not be open, so be sure to go to the main entrance for entry.

The Houston Zoo does not have its own parking lot; free parking lots in Hermann Park are outside the Zoo, but parking can fill up quickly. A later arrival (8 p.m. rather than 5 p.m.) may improve your parking options.

You can use your favorite rideshare app such as Lyft or Uber; these services can drop you off and pick you up right at our main entrance, and you save time and eliminate parking hassles with this convenient solution.

Additional Parking on Select Nights

On many Prime Nights, you can park at the South Extension (SE) Lot at 7100 William C. Harvin. Parking is $7 per car and includes a free shuttle to the Zoo. Easy in, easy out! Last entry to this parking lot is at 9:00 p.m.
