PARKINGBack to Top   

On-Site

  • Road Closures: The 400 and 500 blocks of Brevard Street between East 9th Street and East 7th Street and the 300 and 400 blocks of East 8th Street between the light rail tracks and North Caldwell Street will close on Monday, September 22, and remain closed through May 2015 in order to accommodate construction of the new First Ward Park. See map below for details.


  • Parking Under ImaginOn
    Limited parking is available in the parking deck below ImaginOn, which is accessed from 6th Street. There is direct elevator access from the parking deck to the ImaginOn entrance. The first 90 minutes are free for ImaginOn guests (parking ticket must be validated). After 90 minutes additional rates apply. Because there is only one exit, there may be delays when exiting if the lot is close to capacity.


  • Parking at Seventh Street Station
    Located across the Lynx light rail line from ImaginOn, this deck has entrances on 6th and 7th Streets. For ImaginOn visitors, the deck offers 3 hours of free parking after 5:00 pm Monday - Friday, and free parking on Saturday and Sunday. There is no free parking before 5:00 pm Monday - Friday. Parking ticket must be validated at the Welcome Desk in the ImaginOn lobby. Additional rates may apply when there are Arena/Uptown events. Make sure you identify yourself as an ImaginOn guest when entering the parking deck if Arena/Uptown event rates are in effect.


  • Surface Parking Lots
    Several ground level parking lots surround ImaginOn. Fees range from $3.75-$5.00 and must be pre-paid using exact change. Rates may increase when there are Arena/Uptown events.
