Whatever your downtown destination, a parking space is conveniently available. Two, three, four, and ten hour metered spaces along the streets and in designated lots make visiting the downtown and waterfront areas hassle free. Parking meters are enforceable Monday through Saturday, 8 AM to 6 PM with exception to holidays (New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day).

If you don’t want to think about time on a meter, make the Larry C. Hardy or Old Town Parking Garage your parking destination. These facilities offer the most affordable parking rates in town!
