2008 Rhythm & Booms Parking: What you need to know!

Madison, WI – June 26, 2008. Parking will be available in the Warner Park lot until such time that it is full. In previous years, the lot has been full by early afternoon.

Cars parked in Warner Park, Northside Town Center and other nearby parking lots WILL NOT BE ALLOWED to leave those parking areas until at least 12:00 Midnight. It is the goal of the Madison Police Department to expedite large crowds of people walking from the park and to clear the nearby roadways of parked cars to facilitate the flow of an extraordinary amount of vehicles leaving the area.

Madison Police encourage you to walk to the Park if at all possible. If you do drive, please park your car facing in the direction you’ll be leaving.

Additional Handicapped Parking spaces have been added in the Warner Park parking lot near the shelter house.

Parking is available at Northside Town Center on a first come first served basis; no reservations are accepted. For additional information contact Jon Bruns at 608-843-0550, or email Parking is $ 20 per car or $ 80 for any vehicle requiring more than one parking space, including mobile homes and RVs.
