Most on-street parking around downtown is limited to two hours. If you are making a short trip downtown, open spaces are abundant, but you may have to park around the corner from your destination. If so, you can enjoy a stroll along some of our historic streets.
FREE ALL-DAY PARKING
There are several free all-day parking lots around the downtown area. Lots are located off Yellowstone Ave along the railroad, behind the buildings south off Broadway between Shoup & Park (the first few rows are 2 hour parking – please look for signs), most streets north of Constitution, corner of D Street and Park and across the street on D Street, corner of E Street and Capital and on the corner of Constitution and Shoup.
PAY TO PARK LOTS – OPEN 24/7
The IFDDC operates four pay-to-park parking lots in the heart of downtown – B Street East and B Street West lots are at 451 B Street (near the south east corner of Capital and B Street), the third is along the Yellowstone Highway between A and B Streets with the entrance coming in off A Street and the fourth is at The Broadway development where there are 22 surface spaces. The Capital Lot we manage is reserved permit parking only, hourly parking is not available in that lot.

RESIDENT PARKING PERMIT IS AVAILABLE
Bona-fide residents of the downtown area may apply for a permit which will exempt them from any parking limit established for parking spaces within the off-street City owned parking lot.
This permit is not valid for parking in the 2-hour parking spaces on the streets or in our Pay-to-Park lots. The cost of each permit is $50.00/annually. Only one (1) permit per licensed driver is allowed. The permit must be displayed in the vehicle so it is visible from outside the vehicle, whenever they are parked in a two-hour parking space in city parking lot. It is unlawful to transfer or allow another person to use this permit. Contact 208-535-0399 for more information.
