Tātaki Auckland Unlimited (Auckland Zoo and Western Springs Stadium), MOTAT and other Western Springs stakeholders are working with Auckland Transport to provide more parking spaces and improve accessibility and safety at all the car parks in the Western Springs precinct. On completion of an additional 155 new public spaces at MOTAT’s Aviation hall site, a modest $2 per hour parking charge (capped at $8) will be implemented at car parks at Auckland Zoo, outside Western Springs College and the new car park at MOTAT to cover the cost of ongoing maintenance of the car parks. Any surplus will go directly to MOTAT and Auckland Zoo to help support the great work of both our organisations.
On-street parking on Motions Road and Old Mill Road will remain free of charge and will be time-controlled in some areas to ensure regular turnover and parking availability for visitors to the precinct.
Public transport is currently half price (until 31 August 2022) and you can options for getting to Auckland Zoo on the Auckland Transport website.
