The St. Louis Cardinals and the Cordish Companies announced today that more than 400 parking spaces within Ballpark Village are now available for fans looking for game day parking.
"This is a significant construction milestone that will improve the game-day experience by providing additional convenient parking for our fans," said William DeWitt III, President of the St. Louis Cardinals. "It is exciting to see the daily construction progress on Ballpark Village as we all look forward to Opening Day 2014."
The development team, which broke ground on Ballpark Village in February of this year, has completed construction of a majority of the surface parking lot, as well as a significant portion of the overall infrastructure for the 10-acre development. The development team has also completed most of the structural steel work on the first phase of Ballpark Village, which is on schedule to be completed by Opening Day 2014.
Some additional paving work will be completed over the next few weeks. Public parking for games is available for $20. For more information regarding parking hours, operation, rates and the availability of monthly parking, the public should contact St. Louis Parking at 314.341.7777 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The construction of Ballpark Village represents the next step in the Cardinals' vision for their investment in downtown St. Louis that began with the opening of the privately financed, $411 Busch Stadium in 2006. Ballpark Village is a mixed-use retail, entertainment, office, and residential district being developed in partnership by the St. Louis Cardinals and the Cordish Companies. Spanning seven city blocks on the 10-acre site just north of Busch Stadium, Ballpark Village will be the country's first fully integrated mixed-use development designed to deliver the excitement and energy of the game day experience to a new neighborhood outside the stadium walls.
