The Team Behind ParkZen
OUR MISSION

ParkZen is committed to help people in finding street parking and in locating their parked vehicles, without the need of a bluetooth interaction. Save money and time to do things that really matter, instead of paying for private parking or looping around for that one free curbside spot.

A SENSE OF COMMUNITY

ParkZen is technology started by passionate problem solvers at the University of Chicago, in the heart of one of the city's most diverse and densely populated neighborhoods: Hyde Park.
 
By simply downloading and running the ParkZen app you can help yourself and other users find parking faster.
