Convenient Parking in Downtown 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 at $0.75 per hour ($8 per day maximum), they are cheaper than metered parking and you reduce the risk of a citation since you may park for up to 72 hours.

Parking personnel are available 24-hours per day 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.

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.

Promotional  Parking

Many merchants also participate in the "Shop Here, Park Free" Validation Program. Just park in any one of our garages, shop or eat at one of the participating locations, and you'll receive a voucher for one hour of free parking.

Motorcycle and Scooter Parking

Motorcycle and Scooter parking is free within designated spaces in all of the City's lots and garages.
