Capital Area Parking

During weekdays, parking is a major problem around the Capitol. Although there is metered parking on all streets around Capitol Square, it is not adequate to handle the number of individuals who desire to park close to the Capitol.

There are six parking ramps within three blocks of the Capitol:
Boji Parking Ramp at the corner of Capitol and Allegan, the ramp at the corner of Townsend and Washtenaw.

The City Parking Ramp at Capitol and Kalamazoo.
The City Parking Ramp at the intersection of Allegan and Grand.
The City Parking Ramp at Ottawa and Grand.
The City Parking Ramp at Capitol and Shiawassee.

Parking space for cars and vans is also available in the Michigan Library and Historical Center parking lot.

There are approximately 78 metered city parking spaces around Capitol Square on Walnut, Ottawa, Capitol and Allegan Streets.

Walnut 20 metered spaces
Capitol 21 metered spaces
Allegan 19 metered spaces
Ottawa 18 metered spaces

Thank you to all those that attended and helped me set up and tear down.  It was great going to Kewpie's for a sandwich and soft drinks with a few of you after the rally.

Thanks again for all your help.


It was a good time! Glad to be there!

I had a great time at the march and the restaurant after....the back and forth banter at the restaurant was great  :D   I always like putting faces to the forum names, although I'll never remember most of your real names.

Thanks for the hard work and effort that went into putting this together.
