Getting There

Old Zoo Directions


When you enter the park, look for these signs:

Yes, it does say “Free Shakespeare” and not “Vaudeville You Paid For” but they are the signs we have and they are helpfully bright and easy to see! (Plus, this is a photo of Sarah. If you need anything at the park, look for her! She is also very helpful.)

Parking is free, but the lots are pretty crowded on weekends, so try and come a bit early to secure a spot.
