    scotia bank parking tips?

    Post by Vandelay on Fri Mar 22, 2013 11:00 pm

    Hey folks...going to the game tomorrow afternoon and was wondering if any of you had any tips for free parking. I don't mind a bit of a walk and want to be able to miss traffic as much as possible on the way out (without missing any of the game of course). Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Autopark. I haven't paid for parking since I was older enough to drive.

    I always park at the Costco and walk from there. It's a good 10-15 minute walk, but it works well for me. Smile

    Since it's an afternoon game, fewer people will be doing the "dinner and shuttle" thing, so it's likely the surrounding parking lots will be filling up quicker. Last time I went I was on Huntmar, crossing over the 417, and I saw a few people stop and back into the road going off to the right to the car dealership area (now I get what NEELY was saying -- that's the "Autopark"). I was there about an hour before game start and there were still spots available. Another way to get to that road is go down Palladium, past the SBP, turn right into the Autopark, go around until you hit that roar (it goes off on the right, just after the GM parking lot, I think).

    Come to think of it, I bought two cards from them, maybe I'll give my salesman a quick call next time and ask if I can park in their service area.

    Auto park is absolutely the way to go.
