Frontage Road Free Overflow Parking until 11pm

Free overflow parking on the South Frontage Road is allowed once both parking structures are full. Please refer to the variable message signs located at the Vail Town Center off ramps (exit 176) and Main Vail roundabout to make sure the overflow parking option has been officially activated. Once the Frontage Road has been released for overflow use, park on the I-70 (north) side of the roadway, leaving as much shoulder area as possible for your safety, avoid blocking driveways and leave plenty of space, as much as 50 feet, at intersections. Perimeters on the Frontage Road which prohibit parking will be marked.

Free parking is available at Donovan Park from 7am to 11pm, located at 1600 South Frontage Rd., with 90 spaces on days when the pavilion isn’t in use. A sign will be used at the park’s entrance to indicate availability each day. The parking area is serviced by the Matterhorn bus stop, which is located west of the park at the intersection of Matterhorn Circle and West Gore Creek Drive.
