On select days throughout the year, the L.A. Zoo offers a Preferred Parking Program for a nominal fee, payable on-site (cash only). The Preferred Parking Program operates on busy, peak attendance days including most holiday weekends and special events. On these days, limited free parking is available in designated areas.
When you visit the L.A. Zoo please do not feed the animals. All of the Zoo’s animals need special diets to stay healthy and the wrong food can make them sick. Feeding the animals may result in your removal from the Zoo.
