The City of Portland monitors and enforces parking within Washington Park, which has a pay-by-space meter system in place. Visitors are encouraged to take advantage of the MAX Light Rail station that comes right to our campus. The MAX park-and-ride lots are generally available evenings and weekends. For more information call TRI-MET at 503-238-RIDE or visit their website.
You can also visit Explore Washington Park’s website to learn about overflow parking shuttles, transportation options, and general park information.
When planning your visit, please be aware that special events such as Zoo Concerts and other peak times can create parking shortages. Parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis to all people visiting any of the institutions. We cannot reserve or guarantee parking for any events.
