Special Parking Message for June 9th Mariners vs. Dodgers Game
University of Washington commencement is Saturday, June 9 at CenturyLink Field. It starts at 12:30pm and is expected to draw some 40,000 people.
What does this have to do with the Mariners? It means that fans arriving for the game vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers (4:15pm start) may find parking a little challenging.
The good news is there are spaces being held for Mariners fans at garages surrounding Safeco Field. There is limited space at the Safeco Field garage. Those spots are likely to be gone well before game time. CenturyLink garage, just north of Safeco Field, has some spots available as well as Union Station garage on S. Jackson, and the Metro garage east of the ballpark on 6th Ave. S. You can pre-purchase spaces at these garages at www.ipmseattle.com/june9.

And for you cyclists, there are over 200 bicycle parking spaces in a secure area of the parking garage. And they’re free.
The best advice for Saturday is to give yourself a little extra time, get here early and watch batting practice, have a bite to eat and get settled for a fun afternoon at Safeco Field.
