Parking Booth: The parking booth is automated and takes cash or credit card, but it is best to bring both in case one is not operating. Parking is $11. The pay parking lot can fill up quickly on special event dates, and some popular weekends.
CABS – LIMOs – Dropoffs: For some reason the Park Disctrict no longer allows livery vehicles to dropoff their fares past the parking booth. You will have to be dropped off there and walk to H-dock.
