Self-Park: Patient and Family Garage
The Boston Children’s Patient Family Garage is located directly across the street from our main entrance at 300 Longwood Ave. The garage is on the corner of Longwood Ave. and Blackfan St. with the entrance located on Blackfan St. (across from Bertucci’s Restaurant).
The garage is open 24 hours a day with reduced rate validated parking available for patients and parents. The validated rate for the Patient Family Garage is $10 for up to 24 hours (or one exit).
Parking tickets can be validated at the following Boston Children's locations:
· Main Lobby Reception Desk: Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
· Emergency Services: open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (Parking validation for emergency patients only)
· A limited number of clinics have validators located in their reception areas. Please ask about parking validation when you check in for your appointment.
Valet Parking Services
Valet parking is available 24 hours a day at the main entrance of the Hospital. Normal garage rates apply and there is an additional $5 charge for valet services. Vehicles with handicap placards are waived the additional $5 charge for valet, but normal garage rates still apply.
Reduced rate validation is available for patients and parents using valet services with a maximum charge of $15 for up to 24 hours. Validation for valet parking is available only at the Main Lobby Reception Desk and in the Emergency Services Department.
Family Parking Programs
In and Out Parking
Keep your paid parking receipt and you can use it as a voucher for free same-day parking if you enter and exit the Patient Family Garage again before midnight. Just present your original paid receipt to the parking cashier when you’re ready to leave again and there will be no additional charge for your second visit up until midnight on the same day. Some restrictions apply.
Family Extended Stay Parking
Long term visitors with a minimum one week stay can enroll in the Family Extended Stay Parking program and be issued a parking pass to enter and exit the garage without needed to visit the cashier station. Week-long cards can be purchased for a discounted rate of $60 each (seven days for the price of six) and you are free to come and go as many times as you wish during that period. Additional consecutive days can be added for $10 per day. Some restrictions apply. Please visit the Boston Children’s Parking Office with your vehicle information and parent ID to enroll in the Family Extended Stay Parking program.
