It’s Back: Free Summer Saturday Parking in Downtown

Tired of dealing with pay stations? The City of College Park is here to make your summer a little easier, as you can park in the Downtown garage for free every Saturday from May 31st to August 23rd.  The garage is located at the corner of Knox Road and Yale Avenue, convenient to more than 65 retailers.

Remember that free parking is always available on Sundays in the garage, surface lots, and the street.

Enjoy your summer and we hope to see you Downtown!
