Municipal Lots

Water Street Lot

In addition to Worcester's municipal garages, municipal parking lots are available throughout the city. These parking lots are conveniently located within a short walking distance of many notable downtown destinations.

At locations with pay stations, simply enter your license plate number, select the desired duration and pay the amount indicated. It is not necessary to place your receipt on the dashboard of your vehicle.
