TAMPA, Fla. — If you've got reservations to visit the Super Bowl Experience at Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park this upcoming week, plan for extra time, as parking can be a little hard to come by.

We've created this parking guide that explains the options for all visitors, at a range of price points.

The closest parking to Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park is going to be right along the Tampa Riverwalk, however, this parking may cost you a pretty penny.

“It was a bit steep, I think it was $40,” said Ngoc Pham, who was visiting the Super Bowl Experience.

Of course, the closer you park, the more expensive it's going to be, but there are plenty of other options, too.

You can also park farther into Downtown Tampa, or closer to Curtis Hixon Park in one of the lots. Parking is a little cheaper in these places, you'll just have to walk farther to get to the experience.

“We parked over in Ybor City, and then we took the tram over to avoid all the traffic,” said Jayme Lindsey, who was visiting the Super Bowl Experience.

But that's not all your options. Over in the neighborhood south of the Laurel Street bridge, several homeowners have decided to allow parking in their yards. They're charging between about $10 and $20, and they're only about a block away from the Super Bowl Experience entrance.

“If you come down, 1001 Arch Street, you could pull up and pay $20 to park,” said Katrena Jones, a homeowner in the area.

Just across the neighborhood from Jones, at the corner of Delaware Ave. and Nassau St., Monique Kimbrough is doing something similar.

“We’re just charging $10 to park. We have hand sanitizer, we have Lysol, we have masks, we have everything that they need and we also have Bucs t-shirts,” said Kimbrough.

Around a dozen homes in the neighborhood are following suit, and they plan to allow parking in their yards through the end of Super Bowl week.
