Getting here

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the Olympic Games, the zoo will be closed on July 24 and 27, 2024. We invite you to consult our schedules page for the latest news if you have planned a visit during the Olympics.

The possibility of parking near the zoo cannot be guaranteed, especially in the case of sunny weather (high attendance at Bois de Vincennes and Lac Daumesnil). Several means of public transport make it easy to reach the park. That’s why, in a logic of practicality but also of sustainable development, we strongly advise you to favor public transport.


There are several metro stations and lines to take you to the Parc Zoologique de Paris

  • Line 8, Porte Dorée station: less than a 10-minute walk from the zoo entrance

  • Line 1, Château de Vincennes station, then Bus 46


  • 46, 86, 201 and 325 (bus stop: Demi Lune - Zoological Park)

We don’t have a private car park. To facilitate the arrival of car owners under advantageous conditions, the Parc Zoologique de Paris has approached structures who offer preferential rates for certain car parks near the Park. After parking in one of these car parks, you can reach the zoo in a few minutes and in complete peace of mind using the metro, buses or even the tram.
