Parking

Spring break is a popular time to visit the Zoo! And with 7,000 animals and 64 acres – we’re ready for you! A couple insider tips:

  • Allow extra time for traffic and parking. 
  • Designated Fort Worth police officers will be onsite directing traffic and coordinating with Zoo staff to keep visitors moving into one of our multiple parking lots. The Zoo is maximizing its resources to keeping traffic moving efficiently. Follow the car in front of you (and the police officer, and the Zoo employee) and we’ll get you in as quickly as possible.
  • Did you know that small coolers and outside food and drink are permitted inside the park? It’s true! We just ask that you do not bring in glass, alcohol, or disposable lids and straws. 

Spring break is a great time to visit – come explore!
