Pro Parking Tips:
Pro Tip 1: Be careful of parking during the winter months. After a heavy snowfall the city can issues "snow bans" on parking. There are 2 types of bans that can be issued - a "general" ban which prohibits parking on main city streets or an "all-city" ban which prohibits parking on an city street. Be sure to move your car ASAP after any snowfall to avoid getting ticketed or towed.
Pro Tip 2: Take advantage of the complimentary parking in the Garden Avenue Parking Garage. Look for the Parking Validation Program decal in the window of District merchants to get 2 hours of free parking!
