Off-Street Parking

Off-street parking provides convenient parking in a protected location. Nearly three-quarters of all off-street spaces are located in decks. The remainder are in parking lots. There are now more than 2,300 off-street parking spaces. View Winston-Salem Parking Guide map [pdf/421kb/1p]

  • Over 2,200 spaces are in two parking decks: 4th/Church and 6th/Cherry.
  • The Park & Stroll Program promotes shopping and commerce in the downtown area by selling discount stamps for lower hourly parking rates. The city's public parking decks honor Park & Stroll stamps.
  • At most facilities, hourly rates are $1.00, with a $9 maximum per day.
  • Third-party billing for special event parking is available.
  • The Revenue Office in the Finance Department collects payments for off-street spaces. The Revenue Office is in Bryce A. Stuart Municpal Building, Room 121,
    100 East First Street, Winston-Salem, NC 27101.
