The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Zn(C11H8O5)(C12H8N2)]n, is composed of a ZnII ion and 3-[3-(carboxylatomethoxy)phenyl]acrylate and 1,10-phenanthroline ligands. The ZnII ion adopts a distorted square-pyramidal ZnN2O3 coordination. The bridging mode of the dianion leads to the formation of zigzag chains parallel to . Intermolecular π–π stacking interactions [centroid–centroid distance of 3.5716 (12) Å] lead to the formation of a two-dimensional network parallel to (001).
