Beginning next weekend, visitors to downtown Redwood City will be offered $5 valet parking near Courthouse Square.
The program will run 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. every Friday and Saturday night beginning May 3. The effort is a response to customer concerns about the downtown area’s cramped parking situation which has worsened with an increase of construction and street closures. The valet parking is a joint effort of the downtown business Group, Fox Theatre, Shops on Broadway and Redwood City.
Motorists can drop off their vehicles on Middlefield Road at Broadway, adjacent to Courthouse Square except for Friday nights from June 7 through Sept. 27 when it moves to Winslow Street at Theatre Way to accommodate Music on the Square concerts. The cost is $5 with validation from participating businesses and $10 without.
Participating businesses include Arya Global Cuisine, Cafe La Tartine, Downtown, Fish’s Wild, Five Guys Burgers & Fries, New Kapadokia, Pizza My Heart, Portobello Grill, Quinto Sol, Sabe Cafe, The Melt, The Old Spaghetti Factory, Yoppi Yogurt and Sakura Teppanyaki & Sushi.
