Parking - Public

Why have we changed over to PARKPLUS?

The primary reasons are to increase efficiency and improve traffic flow in and out of the zoo’s parking lots – in particular on those busy days and during special events like Zoolights.

  • Parking arms at the gates have been removed, thereby eliminating waiting at the gate when vehicles arrive and depart the zoo; gates will be 100% free flowing.
  • Parking pass validation issues will be eliminated at the gate further reducing the potential for delay on entry/exit.
  • Even with a service fee paid to the Calgary Parking Authority, the zoo will continue to receive more than 85 per cent of the revenue from parking which goes toward supporting zoo operations and conservation work.
