San Francisco Giants parking guide 2018

When the main lots are full, here are the best places to park it during game day

View as Map

Baseball season is upon us. Before the season officially opens on Thursday, your San Francisco Giants will take the field at AT&T Park for an exhibition game against the Oakland A’s. And with that comes vehicular congestion in SoMa and Mission Bay. Unfortunately, parking anywhere near the stadium can be a hassle. (Here’s the link for the official “Get Me to the Park and Parking, Tailgating, and More.”) While AT&T Park provides plenty of spots in adjacent lots A, B, C, D, and E, those spaces fill up fast. Check out our map for the 10 other best parking lots on game day.

Other considerations:

  • Be prepared to pay top dollar.
  • Most lots increase (read: gouge) prices during game day.
  • Stay away from the meters as you have to pay for those unless otherwise noted (e.g., Sundays, certain holidays)
  • Shuttles are a great option.
  • Really, public transit (BART and Muni) is the best option.

1. California Parking

801 Bryant St
San Francisco, CA 94103

This spot, located near Sixth Street, isn’t the safest area come nightfall. But it’s a cheaper bet if you need an inexpensive spot. Also, expect to walk a few blocks before and after the game. Ideal for day games.

2. Harrison Street Garage

777 Harrison St
San Francisco, CA 94107

Large lot smack dab next to the freeway onramp. Ideal for day games; the area gets congested at night with kids from the 18-and-over club down the block, as well as rowdy Giants fans. Otherwise, a safe and secure spot. Across the street from Whole Foods, too; perfect for stocking up on artisan treats to bring into the park.
