Parking at PlayhouseSquare
PlayhouseSquare has kept event night parking affordable for our customers. In fact, parking purchased for the on-site PlayhouseSquare garage at just $12.00, is priced lower than other parking facilities at every downtown entertainment and sports venue, where prices are sometimes more than double at $15 to $25 on event night for lots that can be several blocks away.
The Garage offers a covered walkway (re-opened October 2011) from the Garage into the theaters. The walkway is accessible from the 2nd floor of the Garage and elevators are available on each parking level of the Garage.
Purchase parking in the PlayhouseSquare Parking Garage (located at East 15th and Chester) in advance and save! Parking is just $10.00 online ($12.00 on-site).
Parking passes may also be purchased at the PlayhouseSquare Ticket Office (located in the State Theatre Lobby) during normal business hours.
If your party requires special needs or curbside wheelchair assistance, please call 216-771-8403 in advance of your show and we’ll be happy to help.

Downtown Clean and Safe Ambassadors
Look for the Gold and Blue Uniforms…Our Downtown Clean and Safe Ambassadors
When you’re in the PlayhouseSquare District, a clean and secure environment makes your outing more enjoyable. That is why the Downtown Cleveland Alliance (DCA) launched the Clean and Safe Ambassadors Program more than four years ago. Fifty-five Ambassadors work seven days a week, cleaning and patrolling the sidewalks downtown and are recognized by their gold and blue uniforms.
Aside from greeting and cleaning, the DCA Safety Ambassadors patrol downtown on foot and bicycle. People working late at night and guests walking back to their cars after a performance at PlayhouseSquare appreciate the presence of the Ambassadors on the sidewalks, and especially their willingness to walk them to their cars.
If you’d like a DCA Safety Ambassador escort to walk you to your car, RTA HealthLine platform or near-by hotel, please call the DCA Safety Escort Service at 216-621-6000.
Ambassadors can reach you within 15 minutes.
The Downtown Cleveland Alliance (DCA) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to building a dynamic downtown.
