As it continues to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commonwealth of Virginia is now in Forward Virginia: Phase One of its response program. We've created a special page with more information about Phase One Guidelines and what it means for local businesses and experiences in Virginia's Blue Ridge. See the Guidelines >
It's usually difficult to find parking in the downtown areas of big cities but that's not the case in Downtown Roanoke.
Our historic downtown provides a great variety of hourly spaces and street parking, along with reasonably priced lots and garages.
The Warehouse Row Lot, Elmwood Lot, and Elmwood Park Garage all offer free parking after 5:00pm on weekdays, as well as all day Saturday & Sunday.
PARK Roanoke also has a page on its website with information with information about FREE parking in Downtown Roanoke. Learn more >
If you have a mobile device, you can also take advantage of a new service that has been created in partnership between Park Roanoke and Downtown Roanoke, Incorporated. The PARK Noke app is a free service that is available on Apple devices to help you meet your parking needs.
The app uses GPS data to determine the user's location and provides parking information, sorted by distance to the various parking options throughout downtown. The lots are sorted by distance to your current location and show paid or free status based on time of day and day of the week.
