Things to Keep in Mind When Using Off-Street Visitor Lots


Some visitor parking lots in the Northwest District are shared lots. They are owned by private institutions and are only open to the public during their proprietors' off hours.


You will know you are in the right lot when you see a sign like this

Because off-street lots are run by third party operators, not by the City of Portland or the NW Business Association, each lot has its own set of rules and its own set of  parking prices (by hour, day or month).

Please honor the rules and rate schedules of each individual lot. Violations may be subject to citation or tow, so be sure to read the signs. 


Meter and Permit Parking Information

Please note that the Northwest District has a combination of metered spots and permitted parking with visitor time limits. Visitors may use permitted parking spots without a permit as long as they adhere to the posted visitor time limit.

Employees and residents of the Northwest District cannot use their parking permits on or around the 21st Ave and 23rd Ave corridors. Please refer to posted signage when parking near these areas in order to avoid citations.

Meter rates can be found here.

Want to skip the meter? Use the Parking Kitty app and pay from your phone!

Parking is also available to the public at metered on-street spaces throughout the district.

In the Northwest District, meters operate from 9AM-7PM, Monday through Saturday, unless otherwise posted.
