We encourage all downtown visitors to park in one of our eleven parking garages. Listed within the Explore Map as well as on the printable Parking Guide are the hours of operation and costs for each garage. The downtown parking garages are well lit and are in close proximity to many key attractions. These parking options are meant to help better serve you – our guests.
Surface Parking Lots
Surface parking lots are also available throughout the downtown area. Rates will range in price.
Valet parking is another option offered in downtown Baton Rouge. Please call the selected venues for more information.
