Downtown St. Petersburg Parking

There are approximately 6,500 on-street spaces in the greater downtown area.  Many spaces are time limited to create turnover and availability for retail customers and visitors.  Other spaces are metered, also to help create open spaces when customers prefer to park close to their destination on the street. Metered parking is $1.00 per hour. You can now pay for your metered parking by cell phone. Click here for more information.

There are approximately 25,000 off-street spaces in the greater downtown area and rates vary by location.  At city-owned garages, the normal work day rate is $1 per hour, $6 maximum.  Event rates are usually $5 per day and sometimes $10.  During non-event nights and weekends customers may park at the Sundial (formerly BayWalk) garage up to four hours for only $1.

The St. Petersburg Downtown Partnership maintains a directory of commercially available employee parking, including monthly rates, availability and operator contacts. To view the downloadable version of the Downtown Parking information, please click here  [Adobe Acrobat PDF 11 KB]
