SF Convention Center And Arena Parking Tips

Bookmark and Share

A busy weekend at the Sioux Falls Arena and Convention Center could make it tricky to find a parking space.

"You've got to be willing to maybe take that first space you see and maybe walk a little further," said General Manager, Terry Torkildson.

It's something we've all dealt with. Driving around, searching for that perfect parking spot is never an easy task.

"We knew parking was going to be tough so we got here early enough to get a good spot" said Tom Thomson of Scotland, SD.

But with multiple events going on at the Sioux Falls Arena and Convention Center this weekend, and parts of the lot still under construction, that perfect spot might be out of the question.

"There's a misconception that with the event center being built we've taken up a lot of extra space, but we really haven't," said Torkildson.

Terry says there are more than enough spaces to accommodate everyone. You just have to be willing to look.

"As long as people are willing like I say, to park maybe a little further out in the lot, maybe not hunt for that first row space when you come into the lot, find a spot, park your car and come in. It will be a lot quicker for you than if you drive around looking for a closer space," said Torkildson.

While the actual number of parking spaces hasn't changed dramatically, the construction around the convention center may make it slightly more difficult for visitors to get from lot to lot.

"They see the construction and think 'oh my gosh the parking's not there,' but it is," said Torkildson.

However, the construction does prevent guests from driving from lot to lot as easily as they might like.

"Someone's going to have to do a lot of walking cause it's going to be tough to find spots," said Thomson.

But if everyone is a little patient, they should have no trouble seeking out a space.

"Come out a little earlier, be willing to take that space you see as opposed to try to find a closer one, and those are really the only things," said Torkildson.
