Hi all-

We are coming for a visit and will be there the last Sunday of July. We'd like to go walk downtown, along the 16th street mall, that sort of thing. Where is the best place to try and park that will be close? Any free parking?

thanks!
Alicia

There is free parking on Sundays at the meters. I've also heard there is 2 hour free parking other days on Wewatta by Union Station/light rail - I'm not positive if that's true though.

Is it real crowded on Sundays to park at the meters?

Sundays will be wide open. You can also get validated parking underneath Rock Bottom's garage if you buy something. I believe it's on Arapahoe and the 16th St. Mall. Also, parking is almost always good around 18th and Glenarm Streets.

There's a dollar an hour parking garage at 13th and Broadway at the Denver Art Museum/Denver Public Library complex. It's cheap, you don't have to worry about getting a parking ticket, and it's 3 blocks from the 16th street mall.

[quote=wanttomoveeast;9132001]Sundays will be wide open.


Does this mean stores are less likely to be open?

Nope. They are mostly all open. Denver is a tourist town. They shut down sometimes, but that's usually after 5pm. Also, if you are talking this weekend, that's a whole 'nother ball game. It's the Capitol Hill United Neighborhood's (CHUN) People's Fair. That will be quite the zoo as every person in Denver heads downtown. Parking in this case will be a madhouse, with every meter taken up and the usual $10 lot going up to $20. There is parking to be found, you just have to get away from downtown. Go several streets up and away from 16th St. Mall.

On that day there's also a 1pm Rockies game - which will make finding an open free meter tougher.

oops sorry aliciac. As movementarian pointed out, there's a game that day. But if you head over onto the other end of the mall, near Glenarm and Court streets, there'll be better parking.
