Metered Street Parking
Downtown Appleton’s parking meters cost $0.75 per hour, and are limited to two hours from 9am-6pm. Street parking is free after 6pm on weekdays and all day on Sundays and holidays.
There are four parking ramps located near the Fox Cities Exhibition Center in downtown Appleton providing safe, convenient parking. Each ramp features a unique color-code (Green, Red, Blue, Yellow and Purple) to be easily recognized.
The Red (Red Lion), Green (P.A.C.) and Yellow (East on Washington St.) parking garages are now pay as you exit and accept cash, credit cards, permits and validated hotel cards. Rates are just $1 for less than 2 hours, $2 for 2-3 hours, $3 for 3-4 hours and $5 for over 4 hours.
The Blue (City Center) parking garage has meters, charging the same as on College Avenue with a three hour limit. Parking is free on Sundays.
The Purple (Soldier’s Square) parking garage charges $2, with a 3 hour maximum stay. (For parking garage locations, see maps below.)
