The Best Places to Park in Downtown Phoenix for Free

auto repair phoenix

There’s always a lot happening in downtown Phoenix. That’s why we are sharing some ideas for places to park for free. Downtown Phoenix is the destination for a whole lot of traffic. This traffic gets crazy when big events or games take place in the heart of Phoenix. Destinations like Chase Field or Talking Stick Resort Arena get especially busy during the game seasons.

So where do you park for free in downtown Phoenix?

First off, if you work downtown or have a membership to the YMCA, EOS Fitness or Mountainside Fitness, you should take advantage of parking there for free. Check the rules, but this is an easy way to score free parking for events in downtown Phoenix. Better still, security and or cameras guard these places around the clock.

Another option is the street parking up and down the side streets of south Central Ave. Most of it is unmetered if you park far enough away. Landmarks like The Duce and the bus depot by Lincoln Street are still unmetered. You’re looking at about a half mile walk to the stadium, but during Fall this is a pretty pleasant walk.

Alternatively, you may find a parking spot online using a service like AirGarage. That service helps you save a few bucks if you don’t want to have to fight traffic or crowds when you’re trying to get downtown.

Lastly, get creative. Parking a few blocks up from downtown near a light rail station is a common trend. Enjoy a smooth ride on the light rail instead of fighting the crowd.
