FREE On-Street Parking

There is ample FREE on-street parking available on Main Street as well as several side streets. 
Parking on Main Street is designed to be used by customers needing convenient access for a quick stop at a business.

For this reason, there is a 2 hour time limit on Main Street. Vehicles that exceed this time limit will receive a ticket.

If your plans involve spending some time downtown, please plan to park in an off-street lot.

Note: Tickets are no longer automatically waived for customers. Appeals will be processed through the Manchester Police Department.

FREE Parking in Lots

There are 7 off-street parking lots in the Downtown District, each identified by a color-coded sign system (see map below)

There are 3 ALL DAY FREE lots available!

The other 4 lots allow 3 hours of FREE parking. Vehicles that exceed the posted 3 hour time limit will receive a ticket.

Note: TIckets are no longer automatically waived for customers. Appeals will be processed through the Manchester Police Department.
