How do I get to the Zoo?
Mill Mountain Zoo is located in the heart of the City of Roanoke, on top of Mill Mountain. It is easily accessible from I-81/581, downtown Roanoke and the Blue Ridge Parkway and shares the mountain top with the famous Roanoke Star and the Mill Mountain Garden Club’s Wildflower Garden.
For GPS search for Mill Mountain Park, which we share our parking lot with; we are located off of the Mill Mountain Spur. Please DO NOT use the 2404 Prospect Road address as this does not take you to the Zoo.
Are there parking fees?
There are no fees to park, however the parking lot that Mill Mountain Zoo shares with the Discovery Center and Mill Mountain Park has limited parking, and spaces are available on a first come, first serve basis. If the parking lot is full, there is extra parking at the Star and down by the Fishburne monument. Also be aware that the walk from the parking lot to the zoo will take you about 5 minutes.
Do you allow outside to beverages and food?
Yes, but please no beverages with straws, as they are a choking hazard for the animals.
The zoo has a small playground.
Do you rent strollers?
Do you have electric wheel chairs available?
We do have electric scooters that are available for check-out. We also have manual wheelchairs, if preferred.
Do you have public feedings and keeper chats?
Yes, but the schedule changes daily. Check with Guest Services when arriving to find out what will be happening during your visit.
