Free Parking: Tri-Nations Rugby

By Discover Parramatta

City of Parramatta is offering to extend free parking hours to customers who dine-in at participating restaurants on Eat Street before or after the game.

To support our community and local businesses, Council is offering free parking at Eat Street and Riverbank car parks. This Saturday 5 December, the hours for free parking will be extended to 12pm Saturday to 12pm Sunday so you can enjoy a meal or drink at Eat St before or after the Rugby.

Every other weekend, free parking hours are between 6pm and 3am on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. 

Just spend $20 or more at participating Eat Street restaurants (listed below) and pick up your free parking ticket from the restaurant when you pay your bill.
