Free Parking is available on the Washington Navy Yard for authorized Department of Defense employees in possession of a current Common Access Card, military retirees with a retired military ID card, or family members with a current ID.
You do not have to be in possession of a Naval Support Activity Washington parking placard to use parking after 3 p.m Mondays to Fridays and for games any time on Saturdays or Sundays. For weekday parking before 3 p.m., please go to the Visitor Control Center at 11th and O streets to obtain a daytime parking pass for the game. You may use any open white parking space.
Contract employees may also park after 3 p.m. without the need for a parking placard.
When returning to the yard, you may use any operational turnstile to access the yard as may any guest you have who possesses a valid ID card as listed above. Any non-ID card holding guests must enter through the O Street gate with an ID-card holding escort.
Please use good planning to return to your vehicle. Be aware that turnstiles (click here for turnstile instructions)may sometimes malfunction, especially in inclement weather, making it necessary to either 1. attempt another turnstile or 2. Enter through the 24-hour O Street gate. Longer walks may be difficult for young children or older adults, so have a plan to minimize difficulty for those who are with you.
