On November 13, 2018 City Council approved temporary parking rate changes during this holiday season. Effective Nov. 23 through Dec. 31, park free in any of Santa Rosa's five public garages on weekdays from 6pm to 8pm and all day on Saturday and Sunday.
Enjoy free parking in downtown garages for holiday shopping and dining. For a list of garage locations, please visit our Holiday Season Parking Promotion at www.srcity.org/2989.
If you haven't been downtown in a while, and park at a meter or in a surface lot, please be sure to check the meter and signs for hours of operation. The City Council approved new metered rates and times that went into effect January 1, 2018. The Premium Meter Zone meters operate 10am to 8pm (look for the BLUE signs) to help ensure spots are turning over, making it easier to find a spot. The Value Meter Zone meters operate 10am to 6pm (look for the GREEN signs). Find more information at https://srcity.org/2591/Downtown-Parking.
