Free Parking Downtown
There is a parking garage downtown, not too far from the Power and Light District, where you can park for free.
It is just a nice little secret where I park whenever I am going to the theater, or grabbing a drink at Flying Saucer.
I don't need validation or a parking pass. I just drive in and tell the attendant the password and he waved me through the gate.
I don't live or work in the building above the garage. I don't even remember who told me about this garage.
Concert at Sprint? Park for free in this garage. Roller Derby at municipal? Park for free in this garage. Convention at Bartle Hall? Park for free again. Even when there are big events, this garage has never had an added charge or more than a handful of other cars.
Even though I live in the River Market and the walk up the hill to the Downtown Loop is really not bad. Still, sometimes, Free Parking is just fun.
