Eent Day Parking
In anticipation of over 6,000 participants this year, we have rented out the Oakland Community College Parking Garage for guest coming to the zoo.  We highly recommend using this option!

Located at 899-847 S Washington Ave, Royal Oak, MI 48067, we are offering a free parking and a free shuttle to and from the zoo from 7am until 3pm.  The shuttle will drop off and pick up at the main gate entrance to the Zoo.

Are pets, strollers, wagons, wheelchairs, bicycles and skates allowed on Walk day? 
The Detroit Zoo does allow strollers and wagons, but for everyone’s safety, please no skateboards, bicycles, inline skates and wheelie footwear. No animals are allowed on Detroit Zoo property.
 *Rental - The Detroit Zoo does offer stroller, wagon, and wheelchair rental for a fee

What happens if it rains? 
Walk is a rain or shine event. However, in the case of severe weather, we will cancel. If this is the case, we will update our Walk homepage on or before the morning of the event.

 Did you know?
You can spend the entire day at the Detroit Zoo after the walk for no charge! We do encourage everyone to fundraise $25 for Alzheimer’s care, support and research.

Feeling Hungry?
Located just a couple blocks from the Oakland Community College Parking Garage, Lily’s Seafood is offering a Dine-to-Donate event! Open from 9am to 11pm; tell them you are there to support the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Located at 410 S Washington Ave, Royal Oak.
