    Parking at WFA

    I haven't been there since the men played Ohio State in BBall...
    Are there any parking lots/decks near the arena that are available? And, how much will i be paying to park?

    There is a huge city ramp at 4th and Grand, about a 5-6 block walk up the skywalk to WFA, and a smaller one that will be more crowded a couple blocks north of that.

    I will probably park at 4th and Grand, it should be a lot easier to get out of than surface lots closer to the arena

    City ramps are usually free on the weekend, but I don't know if they will be for the tourney. If they charge, it will probably be a flat fee-$3 or $4

    If you park in the event parking near the arena its $5 (at least it was about a year ago). It's a disaster getting out of there so I have parked in a ramp a little farther away and using the skywalk to get there.

    The city ramp is the way to go. They have been charging a flat $5 fee lately for those types of events. If you're willing to get there pretty early you can park on the street not too far away as well.

    $6 to park on the surface lots next to WFA. We have a trade show coming up there and that is the rate.

    If you get there early enough you can probably find a spot on the street a few blocks away and that won't cost you anything.

    It's a saturday, so parking downtown will be easy. Just park a few blocks away and walk. Makes getting out so much easier.

    You could buy a parking pass for $7 when I purchased my tickets online.
