    Was wondering where most chatters park at and how you like it.

    My wife and I have been parking at JJ Finley Elem. School for about ten years now. Its pre. paid saved spaces which means you can get there 30 mins before game time if you like. About a three block walk to Emerson hall. Very secure with port-a-poties and trash cans, Would highly recommend for someone looking for a place to park.

      Used to park there in the 80s and early 90s.

        I've been parking in the UF garage on Archer just west of Gale Lemerand. It's a bit of a hike to the stadium but I can always count on spaces there

              I parked at the same family's house for years, a few blocks east of jj finley.
              The last two years a different grandson took it over and is a total prick that changes prices car to car, depending on demand. I told him to shove it and can usually park a few blocks closer for 10 bucks cheaper.
              I don't mind paying more for the big games but, I'm not paying more than the guy right in front of me.

                When we aren’t parking in the visitor RV lot with @BNAG8R and his teepee (RIP), we park over by the law school and the president’s house. It’s a bit of a walk, but it’s free, and we have shade.

                    Same here. It was nice having a reserved spot all season and it’s easy to get out of there.

                          JJ Finley was my elementary school and the approximate halfway point between my house and the Swamp when dad and I would walk to the games. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to do that for several years. Part of the deal when you sign up, but thankfully SOS and urbs gave me plenty of reasons to shout from far away. DM is off to a good start and I’m hoping he can return us to that level of success soon.

                            Can we park there, also?

                              Nice thread

                              I am looking for a hotel for the Towson game. I can get one 20 minutes away but I would have to drive to the game. This helps.

                                  You don't have a hook up (old neighbor) or something? Your place was a bit of walk, but close enough. I could usually drink two or three beers between your house and the stadium!

                                    $20, not a bad walk to the stadium and the fee goes to a good cause.

                                      I always parked at what is now United Church on NW 5th. Even Sas's atheist butt would like those people....very liberal. They didn't permit tailgaiting obviously, but they didn't gouge people on pricing either. Of course, this was years ago.

                                        I parked in Flavet from like ‘92-‘98, then the Garage on Newell and Museum from ‘99-‘17 and starting last year in the lot across from said garage on Newell.

                                          The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
