Long-term parking costs
- Rates for the long-term parking are $.75 per half-hour with a maximum of just $9.00 per day no matter how long you stay. You pay for what you use when exiting so there's no need to worry if the meter has expired.
- On Saturday, enter after 5:00pm for a $5 flat fee.
- The booth attendant or automatic ticket machine takes cash or credit card.
- Many merchants and restaurants will validate your garage parking so check with them and lower your parking costs.
- When the gates are up, generally on Sunday, parking is FREE.
- Parking for major events is a $5 flat fee at the garage only.
Short-term parking costs
- The short-term parking option is on the ground level with a pay-and-display meter system.
- Pay at the kiosk and display your ticket on your dashboard. Use exact change (coins and $1 bills) or credit card.
- It's a three-hour limit so you're subject to an overtime parking ticket if you're running late.
- Your worry-free option will always be long-term parking.
