Official Fenway Park Parking Options
The Fenway Park website on MLB.com lists approximately 35 parking options near the park. This is a rolling list of garages and lots, as well as area businesses that turn into parking lots during game days. There are two “Official Lots” for Fenway:
- 100 Clarendon Garage – This lot is a great economical option at only $10 on game days (must have ticket to redeem rate, and excludes weekday afternoon games), but is a hike at 1.3 miles away from the park.
- Prudential Center – $16 with a valid ticket, and .8 miles away
Park Farther Away and on your Route: The area around Fenway Park during Red Sox games is very hectic and prone to jams. If you value a quick exit, you should park far away from the stadium, or at least in the direction of your travel.
Pre-Pay and Reserve Online: There are many garages and lots within .5 miles of Fenway. You can use SpotHero to reserve parking before heading to the game. It’ll help avoid the congestion caused by paying onsite.
Decide What’s Important to You: When you look for a parking spot, are you more focused on price or proximity to the stadium? We found this post on Fenway Park parking–it highlights a bunch of options and shows rates & distance to Fenway. You can also make a parking reservation before the game.
Arrive Early: No matter where you plan on parking, get there early. We recommend 2-3 hours before the game.
Tips For Finding Street Parking:
- Metered parking spots are 2-hours max unless otherwise posted or after 8 PM. These can be found in the Boston University area northwest of Fenway, or south down Brookline Ave. Four-hour spots are available to the south near the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, about a 20-minute walk.
- Many multi-store retail garages a couple mile away offer inexpensive daily parking, such as CambridgeSide Galleria. Attendees can book parking and take ride sharing or the T in. Find more on Reddit.

Where are the cheapest spots?
- The 100 Clarendon garage is generally considered the best bang for your buck, at just $10.
Is there street parking?
- Yes, but you need to know where to look. A few blocks northwest of Fenway Park is Boston University. Street parking along nearby Bay State Rd is free after 5pm on weekdays and Saturdays, and all day on Sundays. The Red Sox website notes that metered parking is available on Beacon Street as well, but for a cost of up to $22 for the duration of a game. In general, street parking spaces will be filled quickly and fans should pay attention to street signage to make sure they won’t be towed or ticketed. That being said, finding a cheap spot on the street is not out of the question if you arrive early enough and are determined to save a few dollars.
