With main parking lot under construction, Yard Goats partner with three providers to add extra parking

Andrew Larson | Hartford Business Journal The main parking lot for Dunkin' Park is under construction. The Yard Goats have partnered with several parking providers to add extra parking nearby.

When Hartford Yard Goats fans pull up to Dunkin’ Park for the first game of the season next week, they might be shocked to see mounds of dirt and bulldozers in their former parking lot across from the stadium on Main Street.

Developer Randy Salvatore outside Dunkin' Park in downtown Hartford.

That’s where developer Randy Salvatore is building the next phase of his North Crossing development, which includes a 228-unit apartment building and a roughly 500-space parking garage. 

The former primary Yard Goats parking lot is closed.

But the Yard Goats have partnered with LAZ Parking, Hartford Parking Authority and Propark to offer $5 parking in six lots – including three new ones – all within about a block of Dunkin’ Park.

For the first time this year, fans will be able to park in the 1,000-space garage at 200 Church St. under an agreement with the garage operator, Propark. The lot is next to the XL Center.

Spectators can also park at the Saints lot, which has 267 spaces, at 285 Church St. The Hartford Parking Authority lot at 275 Windsor St. adds 803 spaces.

In total, there will be 5,500 spots available within a five-minute walk of the stadium, said Yard Goats President Tim Restall.

“We’re actually increasing the amount of parking that’s within walking distance to the ballpark,” Restall said.

Yard Goats home games attract about 1,200 cars on an average night, he said.

Average attendance exceeded 6,000 at home games last year – the highest average in the team’s history.

Yard Goats parking is available at the following locations:

  • 300 Market St.
  • Saints Lot (285 Church St.)
  • 1000 Main St.
  • 275 Windsor St.
  • MAT Garage (55 Chapel St. South)
  • Church Street Garage (200 Church St.)

“We encourage fans to enter the parking lot address into their GPS to help expedite their arrival,” Yard Goats General Manager Mike Abramson said.

Fans can pre-pay for parking through the Yard Goats website and via the LAZgo app.

Fans also may commute to the games via CTfastrak and CT Transit bus services, from throughout the Greater Hartford area to within two blocks of Dunkin' Park. 

Free parking is available at CTfastrak stations in New Britain, Newington, West Hartford and Hartford Line/Union Station.

There are also 100 bicycle racks at the ballpark.

The Yard Goats’ first home game of the season is on Tuesday, April 9, against the Bowie Baysox.

The Yard Goats are the Double-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies.
