City Updates Parking Plans for Training Camp

Click and Park now available to schedule parking for Fan Appreciation Day

The City of Richmond today issued an updated parking lot schedule for the remainder of the Washington Redskins Summer Training Camp season. A variety of parking options have been offered to Redskins fans for a flat fee of $5 for lots within walking distance, or $7 if a roundtrip shuttle is included.

“We are pleased that patrons visiting the city have found ample parking opportunities, as it was our intent to ensure there would be adequate parking available for NFL Fans visiting Richmond,” said Lynne Lancaster from the city’s Department of Public Works. “A review of our operations since the beginning of Training Camp has led to a revision in our plans for parking lot use and shuttle services. We are able to scale back on some lots and to redirect resources to those lots that we believe will gain the most usage.”

The revised plan eliminates parking and shuttle service at City Stadium for the upcoming Fan Appreciation Day on August 3. Several other smaller lots on the city’s original list of places to park are being eliminated.  Available daily parking lots include the following:

DAILY parking during remainder of  training camp - 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

On Fan Appreciation Day (August 3), with the VCU and Virginia Union lots coming on line, the city believes there will be ample spaces available to accommodate needs based on usage patterns to date. Shuttle service will be provided on Fan Appreciation Day from the lots at VCU and Virginia Union to transport Fans from their vehicles to Training Camp.

Fans can now also go to https://cnp.clickandpark.com/venue to reserve parking in advance. Click on Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center on the Venue Selection page and then indicate when you will need parking. The City will continue to provide handicapped parking directly across the street from the Training Camp on DMV Drive.
