As of July 25th, the zoo has implemented a new automated parking system you’ll encounter when leaving the zoo. Members will exit the lot by scanning their digital membership or a physical membership card on the top scanner. Any other visitors can purchase a parking ticket by scanning the QR codes posted around the park or by using the parking kiosk at the zoo’s front entry.
