Parking

Boston parking meters do not run on Sundays, and we encourage you to find street parking if you are able, though you may need to leave a few extra minutes to search for a spot closer to 11:00 AM. Old South also has arrangements for discounted parking with two nearby garages. We are pleased to offer these options for Old South worship or church business (excluding weddings and concerts):

  1. Park at the Garage@100 Clarendon (behind Back Bay Station), have your ticket validated at our Front Desk, and you pay the discounted rate of $7 for up to three hours. Old South bears no cost.

  2. Park at the Prudential Garage for up to five hours on Saturday or Sunday, have your ticket validated at our Front Desk, and the Prudential Garage will bill Old South (costing us $15,000 - $20,000 per year).
