Whether visiting the monthly arts celebration that is Gallery Hop, enjoying a day of shopping, or just popping in for cocktails and dinner, navigating the parking scene as well as getting to and around the Short North Arts District can be easy. Read on for some updated and new options for navigating the District.

PARKING GARAGES AND SURFACE LOTS AND NEW OPTIONS

There are several parking garages in the Short North Arts District that offer convenient public parking on an hourly or daily basis as well as monthly permit parking. New public parking options include the Price Avenue Lot (#5 on the map below), which opened this summer, as well as the opening of the Greater Columbus Convention Center Goodale Garage (#10 on the map), which opened last year. Both expansions offer more parking in the Short North Arts District.

Make parking even easier, and choose to pre-pay for your parking at the GCCC Goodale Garage, The Hub Garage, The Joseph Garage, or the Arena District Garage, which will guarantee your vehicle a space, making it a worry-free process. You can also choose to pre-pay for parking through Parking Panda. Click here to see learn more.
