Fact: Thousands of parking spaces mean you don't have to get creative to find a spot.DowntownSeattleParking.com has launched for visitors to find available parking lots in Pioneer Square and the Waterfront.

The campaign includes branded advertising, special on-the-street signage pointing to nearby parking lots, and a website featuring all available parking lots. Send the DowntownSeattleParking.com link to family, friends, and customers who are planning their next trip to the neighborhood!

The campaign aims to remind the public that parking in the neighborhood is still possible and that a wealth of attractions await despite nearby construction activity. The project is a result of a collaboration between the Alliance for Pioneer Square, Seattle’s Central Waterfront leaders, the Downtown Seattle Association, WSDOT, SDOT, and Seattle advertising agency Copacino+Fujikado to mitigate the loss of parking related to the Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement Project.
