Parking in Downtown Brattleboro

Whether on street, in one of the outdoor lots or in the Parking Garage, downtown Brattleboro has ample parking, both long- and short-term. Short-term parking is ideal if you’re planning to stay less than two hours.  If in doubt, choose a long-term lot.

We do have very competent Parking Enforcement Officers and overstaying your time will likely result in your being issued a ticket. If you don’t know how long you’re likely to stay, please park in a long-term lot. They are well-located and within an easy walk to all downtown destinations. Spend that additional quarter. It’s worth it!  Smart cards and parking permits are also available and make parking easy and convenient.
