Free overnight parking restrictions in the City of Pasadena will be lifted from December 23rd. If you can’t find an exempt space, you can purchase a free overnight parking permit…
As I stayed at the Westin Hotel Pasadena, I also needed to park my car. However, they charge a lot for parking, so I decided to search around if I can find street parking for free.
Pasadena and surrounding cities have weird parking rules where you can’t park between 2. am and 6. am on the streets.
I think the main reason is so they can ticket people and get revenue, it’s terrible.
Here’s a map of Pasadena I found of all of the streets without overnight parking restrictions.
Any street with a red line on the map should allow you to park overnight.
unrestricted overnight parking map.
Double-check the street for this little white sign, it’s fairly small. Just in case the map has changed.
If you happen to be staying at the Sheraton or Hilton in Pasadena, right down the block there is free overnight parking as well.
It will save you about $20/nt. Certainly worth the time and effort to look for a free space in my mind.
Keep in mind the street may have restrictions during the day, 2 such as two-hour parking only between 9 am and 6 pm. So that means you’ll need to move your car before 11 am.
If you can’t find an exempt space, you can purchase an overnight parking permit.
It’s still cheaper than parking at a hotel or lot, only $3. It’s called a temporary overnight parking permit.
You can purchase the permit online and print it out yourself from this link, the best way, rather than going to find a kiosk.
