The Oregon District parking garage, located at 101 E. Fifth Street, is now an even better parking option for downtown. Just in time for the weekend, new banners were hung yesterday, and new lights are being installed now.
There are brighter walkways at the Oregon District Garage, on the entire ground level from Jefferson to St. Clair streets, as well as the Fifth Street entrance, and the future site for the new mural on Jefferson Street, across from the Levitt Pavilion Dayton.
The Oregon District garage is just $1 after 6pm! This rate is good as long as you exit the garage by 4am. If you end up getting an offer to good to refuse and need to leave your your vehicle in the garage overnight, it reverts back to the $2/hourly rate, but don’t panic- there is a $6/max rate.
You’ll take a ticket when you enter (which you have to do to raise the arm). Then, if you are paying with a credit card, you can pay right there at the exit gate on your way out. If you are paying with cash, you have to pay at one of the machines in the elevator lobby in the first floor of the garage. With a capacity for over 1400 cars, finding a space won’t be hard!
Car trouble while you’re in the garage? The gates all have buttons for assistance (both at entrance and exit). Someone at ABM should be able to respond.
According to the Downton Dayton Partnership, this new $1 rate will support businesses along Fifth Street and the growing number of small businesses in the nearby areas, like St. Clair Lofts and surrounding the future Levitt Pavilion, which will have its first concert August 9.
But if you don’t want to pay, the Downtown Dayton partnership shares “There are still lots of other free parking spaces along the streets in the Oregon Business District. More than 200 spaces can be found along Wayne Avenue, Bainbridge Street, Walnut Street, and Jackson and Pine streets. You can also park for free after 5 pm and weekends in the Greater Dayton Premier Management lot at 400 Wayne Ave., thanks to the innovative parking grant program launched by the Oregon District Business Association.”
