Marlins parking tips: Off-site lots offer 3,000 spaces


Reacting to concerns about inadequate parking, the Marlins have identifed about 3,000 parking spaces in lots near Marlins Park.

Space in the garages adjacent to the park are sold out for the exhibitions games against the Yankees on Sunday and Monday, as well as for Wedneday’s regular-season opener. Anyone without a prepaid pass will have to look elsewhere.

The off-site spaces are in 14 lots. Eleven are within a mile of the ballpark, with those more distant offering shuttle service.
