Please be aware that there is a MAJOR event happening in Druid Hill Park on Saturday, April 29th. The event is Charm City Bluegrass Festival. Many entrances to the park will be limited to vehicle traffic on Saturday, however, the Greenspring Avenue entrance will remain open to Zoo guests. We recommend using this entrance. Please also allow additional time to your travel as we expect both the park and Greenspring Zoo entrance to be congested.

Parking (Zoo vouchers):

The major event in the park will be charging for parking. In order to ensure the Zoo’s parking lot has spaces available for Zoo guests, on this Saturday ONLY, Zoo visitors will be asked to pay for parking (cash preferred) in the Zoo’s parking lot. The parking fee is $10. Guests will then be issued a $10 Zoo voucher for use toward admission costs at the front gate. Zoo members and prepaid ticket holders can simply show their membership card or tickets to gain access to the parking lot without paying.
