The easiest parking would be at the City Parking Garage located at 1 Cordova Street. This is a flat fee for the day and centrally located.
You will also find street parking and lots with metered parking or pay stations that are owned by the city located throughout the town. Look for the ParkStAug logo above for those areas.

We also have private lots located throughout the city that will charge hourly and some charge for the day. You’ll see them when you drive around town. Do not park on the side streets in the residential areas. You will be towed from these areas.
