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.

Additional Transportation Recommendations

COME EARLY, STAY LATE: Great shopping, eating and entertainment opportunities surround Providence Park. Local bars and restaurants welcome Timbers fans before, during and after games to enjoy all that Northwest and Goose Hollow have to offer. Plus, TriMet is expecting crowded trains and buses so any help to ease the pre- and post-game rush to board transit is much appreciated. Information on game day transit is available here.

DRIVERS SHOULD PLAN AHEAD, BE CAUTIOUS -- Streets and sidewalks are expected to be crowded on game days near Providence Park. Fans choosing to drive should be safe by following signs and police direction, driving slow and being patient. To save time and avoid traffic congestion, make a plan before leaving home or work for where you will park downtown and whether you can use TriMet’s express bus or walk to the game. Please note that SW 18th Avenue will be closed to the general public between W Burnside Street and SW Taylor Street and SW Morrison Street will be limited to westbound, local traffic only between SW 19th and SW 21st Avenue.
