There are numerous free and paid parking options throughout the Marietta Square area. The Square features both paid and free parking lots, as well as free parking spaces and several parking decks that are free to park after 5pm on weekdays and free every Saturday and Sunday.  The maps below will help you find the right place to park for any location or event.

Beginning February 1, 2018, parking deck rates are changing:
Currently, parking in the parking decks is a flat rate of $5 for any amount of time on weekdays between 7am and 5pm, with weekends being free to park. Under the new fee structure, weekday and Saturday parking between 7am and 8pm will be free for the first 30 minutes, then $2 for up to two hours, $5 for two to five hours, and $7 for more than five hours or for a lost ticket. Sunday parking remains free.

Anderson Street/Waddell Street Lots

Private parking lots ($5) are located near the intersection of Anderson Street and Waddell Street. Be sure to only park in the paid lots and pay for your space – this area is notorious for booting cars within minutes. Watch out for the lot with the sign reading “Parking for 25 & 27 Atlanta St. ONLY!” as you may be booted or towed if you park there (known as the Tillman lot – marked in red above).

Handicapped Parking on the Square



  1. Please for the love of parking…make the Cherokee St. Parking Deck’s signage BIGGER & closer to the entrance. Plus, move it CLOSER to the entrance. People DON’T notice it because the original sign is: 1. On the ground/ground level, 2. it is painted brown, 3. it is placed way beyond the entrance & people have already passed it.
