Parking is available at the U-Park parking garage on SW River Drive, just above the marina. The cost is $6.95 for up to 10 hours. Alternatively, there is a Portland City Center “Smart Park” Garage at SW 1st and Jefferson. The cost to park at the Smart Park is $7.00 for 4 hours during weekdays or $5.00 for evenings and weekends. It is a short walk across to Waterfront Park where you can follow the walkway a few minutes to the ramp on the South end of the RiverPlace Esplanade that leads down to the marina.
