TXU Energy Presents Zoo Lights is now closed for the season.
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 is available in Hermann Park outside the Zoo, but parking can fill up quickly. A later arrival (8 p.m. rather than 6 p.m.) may improve your parking options.

Additional Parking on Select Nights

On all Prime Nights, you can park at the South Extension (SE) Lot at 7100 William C. Harvin, Entrance 35. Parking is $10 per car and includes free shuttle access to the zoo. Free shuttle, easy in, easy out! Last entry to this parking lot is at 9:00 p.m.

We will also have this SE Lot parking and shuttle option available on the following Value nights: Nov 20, 21, 22, Dec 18, 19, 20.

Rail or Bus
