Superdome/Smoothie King Center Lots
The Superdome and Smoothie King Center have 7 public parking garages and 2 open lots that can accommodate up to 7000 cars. The lots and garages are cash-only. The parking rates change based on the event. The rates generally start around $25 but they tend to change frequently.
The hours of operation for parking meters are Monday-Saturday, from 8am - 6pm. The City of New Orleans is in the process of replacing all of the parking meters. This process will be completed by the end of 2014. These new meters will be solar powered and include a touchscreen and instructions in four different languages. The rates range from $1-$1.50 per hour. Some meters are short-term (eg. 2 hour limit) while others allow you to park for longer periods of time. The new meters accept coins, cash, and debit/credit card payments.
In addition to the new parking meters, New Orleans has also transitioned to a new “pay-by-phone” method for street parking payment. This essentially allows you to register your vehicle online and allow you to use the Parkmobile app when you want to park and the fee will be added to your account.
