Providing our guests with clean, well lit and ample parking is a top priority for Westerner Park.

We offer approximately 4,000 convenient, paved parking spaces in six main lots and 52 handicapped stalls; which can be increased if a particular event requires.

As a not-for-profit organization, Westerner Park invests all of our earnings back into the improvements of our buildings, grounds and amenities. The parking fee helps to cover the ongoing maintenance of our large parking facilities, ensuring they are safe for our guests.
