Denver Zoo parking tips

The Denver Zoo opens at 10 am, but the closing hours vary as per the season. If you plan to spend more than a couple of hours at the zoo, arrive early in the day to find a free parking spot at the on-site garage. Or pre-book a parking spot at an off-site garage nearby and save more on all-day parking. 

When parking on the street with the 2-hour time restriction, you have to move the car at least 100 feet before the time ends to avoid a citation. Be aware of the 72-hour maximum, street cleaning, restricted zone, permit requirements, and other Denver parking rules when you park your car on the streets.
