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 MCG event days, the MCG homepage and event detail pages will feature live updates on the capacity of parking in Yarra Park.

Note: Vehicles will be held back upon exit for a period of time until pedestrians have cleared the precinct.
