Nationwide Arena Parking

Event Parking
There are more than 15,000 parking spaces available within a 10-minute walk of Nationwide Arena. All surrounding parking lots and garages offer spaces for guests with disabilities. The designated drop-off site for guests with special needs is at the corner of Nationwide Blvd. and John H. McConnell Blvd. on the west plaza near the Nationwide Arena Ticket Office.

Arena District parking facilities are adequately staffed to assist in directing traffic in and out of lots and garages. All lots and garages will be pre-pay to avoid delays in exiting.

Pre-Paid Event Parking
Standard Parking is offering the sale of parking online for events in the Arena District. Guests may now purchase and print an individual parking pass for Nationwide Arena events at home. 

 

Non-Event Parking
The Nationwide Arena Parking Garage is also open on non-event days for $5.

Accessible Parking:
Two options are suggested; the north entrance of the McConnell garage or the north-east entrance to the Front Street garage.

Pick Up/Drop-Off
As a part of our increasing security measures we have eliminated the drop off area along Nationwide and McConnell Boulevard.

There will be a small section maintained for ADA guests along McConnell boulevard.

All pickups and drop offs will take place on West Street. West Street can be used for temporary parking while waiting to make a pickup/drop off, however the vehicle must be attended at all times. Unattended vehicles may be subject to tow. During events the intersection of Nationwide and McConnell is manned by CPD.

Vehicles may also utilize the various hourly parking offered at parking meters located in the Arena District. Nearby meters can be found at Burnham Square, Marconi Boulevard (south of Nationwide Boulevard), and Northbank Tower meters (west of Neil Avenue on Nationwide Boulevard by Old Track Street).
