Free Parking At Penn State’s Arboretum To End July 19

Say goodbye to free parking at the Arboretum, folks.

Starting July 19, visitors to Penn State’s Arboretum won’t be able to park for free once the garden’s often-used parking lot is removed to make room for construction of the new Palmer Museum of Art.

Arboretum visitors can park across the street next to the Lewis Katz Building, but they’ll need to pay. Guests can park for $1 an hour or pay for $8 all-day parking passes on weekends.

Two ADA-accessible parking spaces will remain available near the Arboretum’s Overlook Pavilion and can be reached via the Arboretum’s service road during construction. Temporary ADA-accessible walkways will also be installed around the perimeter of the construction to provide access to the gardens.

New stop signs will be installed on Bigler Road near the Katz Building parking lot to improve traffic control for pedestrians crossing the road to the Arboretum’s H.O. Smith Botanic Gardens.

The Arboretum’s lot was one of the last remaining free parking areas on campus. In 2019, Penn State created a new policy requiring 24/7 parking permits for its “core campus lots.”

More nitty-gritty details about parking near the Arboretum are available online.
