Minute Maid Park is located on the northeast edge of downtown Houston, right off of U.S. 59. The ballpark is bounded by Crawford Street, Texas Avenue, Hamilton Street, and Congress Street.

How not to Get Towed While at Minute Maid Park

While stadium parking is limited to season ticket holders, there is plentiful parking street, lot, and garage parking within half-a-mile or closer. Here are some guidelines to make finding parking easier:

  1. Read all signs before you park. Look for signs and banners with the baseball "P" that designates public parking.
  2. Carry nickels, dimes and quarters for parking meters. Many surface lots are unattended and require payment in advance. Keep some one dollar bills handy.
  3. Some Downtown restaurants and hotels offer shuttle service. Ask about parking when calling for lunch or dinner reservations.
  4. The best way to explore Downtown is on foot. You might discover a great new shop or restaurant! Please be respectful of neighborhoods and residential areas.
