Parking Information
Parking is not validated by the Court. All jurors should make arrangements for all day parking. Parking at meters is not recommended. Free parking is not available. To avoid costly parking expenses, we advise you NOT to use the area surface lots near the courthouse. These are privately owned lots and some are VERY expensive (more than your $20.00 per diem will reimburse!) We recommend that you use the county parking garages on Front Street between Mound and Fulton and on Mound Street, east of High Street. The cost per day is $7.00. The county garages accept both cash and debit cards as payment.

Parking is also available to jurors in the Columbus Commons Garage ( formally City Center garage ) between Rich and Main Streets. The cost per day is approximately $7.00. The Columbus Commons garage accepts both cash and debit cards as payment. More information on this option will be included in orientation program on your first day.
