Red Sox Parking

There are several parking lots to select from when going to a night or weekend Red Sox game at Fenway Park. Here's a list of six of them that are within walking distance of Fenway Park. Two things to consider when selecting the parking lot, the location to Fenway Park and the location to major highways to avoid traffic after a game.

Clarendon Street Parking Garage
Distance from Fenway: 1.5 Miles (Approx 30 minute walk)
Game Parking Cost: $10

Clarendon Street Parking Garage is the "official" parking garage of the Boston Red Sox, it's also the furthest parking garage from Fenway Park. This is a good solution if you have plenty of time before a game to get to the park. The garage also has the easiest access to the Mass Pike, you can actually get on the Pike from the garage!

Copley Place Parking
Distance from Fenway: 1.2 mile  (25 mins)
Game Parking Cost: $15

Copley Place Parking is a good solution if the Prudential Parking garage is full. In most cases, you'll probably run into less traffic getting out of the garage. You can easily get on the Mass Pike via Huntington Ave near Copley Square.

Prudential Parking Garage
Distance from Fenway: 1 mile  (19 mins)
Game Parking Cost: $16

The Prudential Parking Garage is an excellent solution for anyone coming to the game using the Mass Pike eastbound. You can get off the Mass Pike and pull right into the garage without having to deal with the off ramp traffic on Huntington Ave. If you don't want to deal with the walk there are plenty of bike rides available to get you to the park very quickly.

Dalton Street
Distance from Fenway: .9 mile (17 mins)
Game Parking Cost: $14

Dalton Street Garage is located just off Boyston Street and next to Kings. This is a very busy garage and can be tricky to pull out due to pedestrian and car traffic. The garage is a little small and there are some tight corners to navigate.

Pilgrim Parking at 425 Newbury Street
Distance from Fenway:  .6 mile (12 mins)
Parking Cost: $25

This is a popular garage for long time Red Sox fans. It's not all that easy to get to, but a nice short walk through Kenmore Square to the park.  If you don't have tickets to the game, you'll run into plenty of ticket scalpers on your way.

Lansdowne Garage
Distance from Fenway: 200 feet (3 mins)
Parking Cost: $40

Right at the Park! Excellent location if you don't want to do a lot of walking. You'll have to arrive early as the garage does fill up very quickly. After a game it can be tricky to get out due to the number of pedestrians and game day traffic.
