Where is the best place to park at Citizens Bank Park?
Parking at Citizens Bank Park is incredibly easy. Parking options that are shared with Wells Fargo Center and Lincoln Financial Field surround the stadium. The majority of the parking directly around the stadium is reserved for season ticket holders or parking pass holders. However, on the south side of the stadium, just south of Pattison Avenue are the K, and L lots that are open to the general public and the most convenient for non season ticket holders. If all of those spots are full, try looking on the northwest corner of the stadium. Parking in this area runs from Phillies Drive all the way to Packer Avenue. There are also good parking options on the southwest corner of the stadium surrounding XFinity Live and Wells Fargo Center.
