Parking schedule

On most event days in the precinct, when rain has not affected the park's condition, vehicles are permitted on the grass in Yarra Park.

Parking costs $10 (cash) and all money is invested back into upkeep of the park.

Event day live updates

On event days, the MCG homepage will feature live updates on the capacity of parking in Yarra Park, as demand for parking is usually greater than space available.

Note: At the conclusion of MCG events, vehicles will be held back for a period of time until pedestrians have cleared the precinct. Also, there are changed arrangements for motorbikes.
