Where to park

Parking in Downtown Portland can be unpredictable, so here are a few suggestions…

  • The Spring Street Parking Garage that is adjacent to the Cross Insurance Arena (formerly the Cumberland County Civic Center). The Spring Street Garage is managed by the City of Portland and rates vary depending on events. Please call (207) 874-2842 for rate information.
  • There is a privately owned parking garage across Spring Street next to the Holiday Inn by the Bay and a large parking lot located at the corner of Spring Street and Center Street. Rates vary depending on the event and are controlled by the property owners. For more information, visit the Portland Downtown District’s parking web page.
  • Additionally, you may try the Park & Ride lot on Marginal Way and a taxi or service such as Lyft (first time riders can use the code WCPWM17 for a discount).
