Parking for free on Monday? Tell that to the Nats

WASHINGTON — While you don’t need to pay at most parking spots in D.C., Maryland and Virginia on Memorial Day, you will need to pay outside Nationals Park.

Under D.C. regulations, game day stadium events at Nationals Park supersede the federal holiday parking rules.

Therefore, you must pay to park or you’ll get a $100 ticket.

For game day events, expect to pay at least $20 at the multi-space meters to cover the time inside the ballpark.

Parking enforcement will also be out on Constitutional Avenue NW between 7th and 17th Street, where “Emergency No Parking” signs will be placed for the annual parade.

Parking in such a zone will result in a $50 ticket and could get your car towed.

Otherwise, the Department of Public Works (DPW) will not enforce meters, residential parking, or rush hour lane restrictions.

Reversible lane restrictions will not be in effect. Booting, towing, and removing abandoned vehicles will not occur, either.

You will not need to feed the meters either in the Maryland and Northern Virginia suburbs on Monday, since it’s a federal holiday.
