Downtown Parking Tips to help navigate Summer activities!

If you’re heading down to the Seattle Waterfront to escape the heat this weekend, there’s a lot happening! Let SDOT help you out get on your way with quick and convenient parking options, thanks to e-park. These real-time parking signs let drivers know how many open spaces are available in their designated parking garage, and are located from the Waterfront to Pioneer Square. These signs can save drivers time and stress that accumulates the longer you circle the city while looking for parking.
