Parking Garages
Covered parking in Santa Rosa

For worry free parking, use any of the five parking garages conveniently located throughout downtown. Not only are the garages clean, well-lit and secure, but they are less expensive than surrounding metered parking and you avoid the risk of receiving a citation for exceeding the time limit. The first hour of parking is free in all five City garages!

Parking staff are available from 6AM - 1AM each day (except City holidays) to answer questions, assist with pay-on-foot transactions, and perform security patrols of the facilities. Personnel can be identified by their bright green vests or jackets, or can be contacted by pushing the assistance button located on the pay-on-foot machines or panels in the entrance and exit lanes.  A security firm patrols the garages from 1AM - 6AM daily.

All garages are free on City Holidays, which are:

If you are employed downtown and need daily parking, a parking permit can be a cost effective option. There are a limited number of monthly permits offered in each of the garages subject to space availability. Call 543-3325 for availability.

The City also offers a discounted Low Wage Employee Parking Permit, a discounted Commuter Permit, and a discounted Evening Employee Garage Permit.
