Downtown Businesses to Offer Convenience of Valet Parking - Friday/Saturday Nights

Redwood City, CA - Starting on the evening of Friday, May 3, a new level of convenience will be offered for visitors to the Redwood City Downtown Theatre District - a valet parking system with nearly two dozen participating restaurants, stores, and entertainment hot spots! Thanks to the Downtown Business Group, the Fox Theatre, Shops on Broadway, Redwood General Tire, and the City of Redwood City, this new program will make it easier and more convenient to visit Downtown. And, at only $5 with validation, it's a great parking deal.

Every Friday and Saturday night from 6 to 11 pm visitors driving into Downtown can drop off their cars near Courthouse Square, and enjoy all that Downtown has to offer, without worrying about parking. This will be especially beneficial for motorists during those crowded nights when Downtown is full of revelry, shows, shoppers, and diners.

This program is the result of many Downtown businesses coming together in a cooperative effort to address their customers' concerns with the sometimes-impacted parking situation. As Downtown Redwood City continues growing into one of THE great destinations for entertainment in Silicon Valley, valet parking will help bring parking relief, more convenience, and peace of mind, at a low cost, to anyone looking for convenient parking on those busy Friday and Saturday nights.

Here are the details (please see for maps and updates):

Start Date:                  
This Friday, May 3rd

Nights of Operation:    
Every Friday and Saturday

Times of Operation:
6 - 11 pm
