Parking Near Central Park Zoo
Located in New York City's Central Park (as the name suggests), the Central Park Zoo features a wide variety of attractions including sea lions, monkeys, and a petting zoo for the kids. Its entrance just inside the park at Fifth Avenue and Sixty-Fourth Street makes getting to the zoo a reasonable walk from most nearby parking facilities.
Does the zoo have on-site parking?
While the zoo does not have its own parking, it does partner with SpotHero to allow visitors to search and reserve parking before their trip. Many garages are within easy walking distance of the Central Park Zoo.
Can passengers be dropped off at the zoo entrance?
No, the City of New York closed all park drives to vehicle traffic years ago. Passengers may be dropped off along Fifth Avenue depending on the traffic, or better yet on a side street near the entrance.
What about on-street parking?
Numerous (and sometimes confusing) street cleaning rules, day and evening restrictions, and weekday/weekend regulations control the majority of the area's side streets. Fifth Avenue has no available daytime parking in the vicinity of the zoo. One block east, Madison Avenue has metered parking capped at two hours.
