On a sunny afternoon in Cleveland, there is nothing more relaxing than going to Progressive Field, buying a freshly grilled hot-dog and a cold drink, and watching the Cleveland Indians do what they are meant to do - play ball. With a capacity of over 43,000, a retro-modern feel and a proven history of selling out, Progressive Field is an impressive arena for America’s Pastime. The only downside is that finding a place to park at the Cleveland Indians parking lot is challenging if you don’t have a reserved spot when the game is about to begin, the beer is perfectly chilled and your seats are right by the dug-out as the national anthem begins to play. Built to replace the previous Cleveland Municipal Stadium, Progressive Field was designed from the get-go to evoke nostalgia for the stadiums of old while still providing modern amenities to players and fans. From the perspective of an outsider looking at the exterior, the stadium looks like a normal, modern arena, but once you step inside, occasionally it feels like you are going back in time. The interior makes use of a simple yet unified color scheme, asymmetrical fences, a small upper deck area and other features to evoke the espirit-de-corps of the golden age of baseball. Even if you have a ticket for a really nice seat (or at least not one in the nosebleed section), if you don’t have a parking spot before the game is about to begin, you might be out of luck -- unless you reserved a parking spot with ParkWhiz, in which case all you have to do is park your car.
When the Cleveland Indians found that they needed a modern replacement for the former Cleveland Municipal Stadium, what would come to be known as Progressive Field was the end result. After two years of construction, Jacobs Field was open for business in 1994, named after ballpark owner Richard Jacobs and his brother David. The name was changed to Progressive Field in 2008 after the Progressive Insurance Company bought the rights to rename what had been known to fans as “The Jake.” Even though it is known these days as “The Prog,” the field is still just as great when it was built. Fans have been so enthusiastic for the Stadium and its tenant, the Cleveland Indians, that it set a major league attendance record from June 12, 1995 to April 4, 2001 with a total of 455 consecutive games selling out! To add to that, during this period, all home games were sold before the first game during five seasons, and impressive feat for any stadium. Of course, the Stadium isn’t the only attraction - people flock to Progressive Field to see the team of the fabled Bob Feller, the Cleveland Indians often parking the ball out of the ballpark itself! The Cleveland Indians won the World Series in 1920 and 1948, while winning the American League Pennant in 1920, 1948, 1954, 1995 and 1997. No matter what happens, John Adams will keep drumming for the team, rallying the fans to cheer the team, even if there is another bug game. The only thing that could bug you when the game is about to start is that you might not have a parking place; luckily, ParkWhiz can help you take care of that ahead of time so you can have a nice day out with your friends and family.

Note that all discount codes will come from ParkWhiz directly. If you received your code from a third-party website, there's a significant chance it will not work. Unless specifically noted, discount codes cannot be used for monthly parking.
If you were issued ParkWhiz credit, the credit will automatically deduct from your total on the checkout page before your next purchase. Be sure you're logged in under the account to which the credit was issued before confirming that purchase, to see the credit applied.
How do I present my my pass on-site?
Easy peasy! As the vast majority of locations in our network accept a mobile pass, this means you can use your phone or other smart device to show proof of your prepaid purchase once you arrive at the parking facility. To be sure, verify the instructions on your pass to confirm the validation method. That section is titled "When You Arrive" in-app or "How To Park" if viewing on a desktop or mobile web.
For a seamless, no-printer-required experience, check out the ParkWhiz app! Thousands of space at your fingertips. Rest assured that if searching and booking on a mobile device, we won't show you any locations that require a printed pass! At least not until cars come equipped with printers!
If your location does not accept mobile passes, you'll need to print the pass before leaving the house.
Do I have in-and-out privileges?
In most instances, no. The majority of locations on ParkWhiz, including all those in New York City, do not allow re-entry.
If any specific parking facility does allow for you to come & go during the reserved timeframe, you'll see a "Reentry Allowed" amenity icon listed; this is shown in the details section both pre-purchase and post-purchase.
If you don't see anything on the listing page pertaining to specifically to reentry privileges, it's best to assume that you will not be allowed to come and go throughout the duration of your parking pass.
Are there any additional fees on site?
Generally, no. What you see online is what you pay as long as you park within the timeframe on your parking pass. Any time parked outside the arrival or departure listed on your pass will likely incur an additional onsite fee, as determined by the parking provider. ParkWhiz purchases include tax.
The only exception to the above pertains to oversize vehicle fees, which may apply to any vehicle larger than a sedan. Fee amounts vary between individual Parking Operators, and will be assessed on-site if you do not prepay for an oversize vehicle through our platform.
Although pricing structures are determined individually by the facility owner/operator, ParkWhiz prices tend to be cheaper than drive-up in most cases! If you ever feel the rate on ParkWhiz was more expensive than drive-up, take a photo of the price on-site and send us an email! We love deals as much as you do and are eager to ensure you're getting a fair rate.
