Downtown West Chester has ample parking available for visitors even during events.
Your best, worry-free options are the two municipal garages -- the Bicentennial & Chestnut Street garages -- located in the center of downtown. Each provides easy access to hundreds of businesses. You pay for just what you use and never have to worry about getting an overtime parking ticket. See garage payment options. Many merchants and restaurants offer garage discount coupons.
