Calgary Zoo Member Parking
Membership Parking at the Calgary Zoo has changed to a new system. ParkOnline is no longer used.
Current Calgary Zoo Engage or Inspire Members
Current Calgary Zoo Engage or Inspire Members will have their membership parking including their current registered licence plate(s) automatically transferred to the new Online Parking Permit System and will be able to continue to park their current registered vehicles at the Calgary Zoo. In order to make changes to your account, you will need to set your password on the new system.
Note: If you have an existing online Residential Parking Permit account, you will not need to set your password as long as you are using the same e-mail as your Calgary Zoo membership. You can login to the new system using the same login credentials as your Residential Parking Permit account.
