Flight Plan

Planning a visit to the zoo this weekend? We highly recommend arriving by public transit, bicycle or on foot. The Chicago Air & Water Show takes place Saturday and Sunday at nearby North Avenue Beach, and we expect big crowds on adjacent streets and at the zoo’s parking lot.

Special parking rates will be in effect during the event. You can purchase passes online ahead of time for a $50/day convenience fee. Individual, Household, Safari and Zoologist members will not receive free or reduced parking on these days. We appreciate your understanding during this busy weekend.

Details and online parking reservations here.
