The Portland Bureau of Transportation advises visitors to Downtown Portland that all SmartPark garages will close at 11 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 22, for Thanksgiving Day and will reopen early on Friday morning.
The City will not charge at the meters for on-street parking on Thanksgiving Day, one of nine holidays observed in all parking meter districts, including Northwest Portland, the Central Eastside and Lloyd District. Regular parking rates and hours will apply Friday through Sunday.
In addition to the SmartPark garages for vehicle access, Downtown Portland is well served by public transit with TriMet and Portland Streetcar, as well as biking and walking options.
