Transportation & Parking

Going to drive to the game?

Parking is very limited near the stadium and is also restricted on game days. Instead of parking in neighborhoods near the stadium, the City of Portland encourages Timbers and Thorns fans to park downtown at a SmartPark garage or one of the many nearby parking lots/garages. See below for more parking information.
