Getting around downtown


Visiting for a day or traveling to other areas, the City of Manassas offers numerous parking options in the Historic Downtown area. The museums, shops and restaurants are all within a short walking distance from public parking. All day parking is available in the parking garage for free after 10 a.m., in any space on any level during the week. The parking garage is free to the public anytime on the weekends.

While street parking is free in Historic Downtown Manassas, all public parking is in timed areas. Please be sure to read the hourly information signs before you park.

Parking For Amtrak

Come to the Visitor Center the day before you travel, and we will issue a parking permit for the AMTRAK spaces in the Water Tower parking lot, or designated space on the second level of the parking garage.  A copy of your boarding pass is also sufficient as a parking permit in the AMTRAK spaces.
