Public Parking Sign


Getting to the Nautical Complex is a breeze, with many different transport options to choose from, including: walking, bicycling, public transport (bus and light rail) and driving. Taxis or rideshare companies (i.e. Uber or Lyft) also operate in Cleveland and are a quick and convenient option.

Nautica Waterfront District Parking is a 1,200 space surface lot, located on 1200 Elm Street, that charges $6 – $10 for event parking, and operates late night parking (until 11pm) on Friday and Saturday nights. It is recommended that guests arrive in plenty of time for events in order to avoid congestion or delays – parking will be open several hours prior to the start of the event. It is advised that parking spaces are first-come, first-served, and will not be assigned. Guests may be able to pre-purchase for specific parking garages, but this is subject to availability and is not guaranteed. Please contact the lot directly to find out more.
