The best parking for Gillette Stadium can cost as much, or more, than an iPad:
Although I don’t think there’s an iPad (yet) that’s this expensive:
Read it and weep, Pats fans.
The face value price of a Gillette Stadium parking pass is $40, but your chances of getting one (at face value) is really, really slim.
So really, you’re going to end up getting one from an online ticket broker, and really, you’re going to pay that much.
And just how much is that much?
The cheapest price for official Gillette Stadium parking lots on average:
The good news is that, much like the game tickets themselves, parking passes usually tend to drop in price as the season progresses, so it’s possible that at some point you can pay as “little” as $200 to park for a Patriots game.
But 200 bucks for parking alone can be a bit much, even if Boston area residents did have the second highest median household income among the 31 NFL cities ($78,800 yearly in 2015).
Save $150. Some people think that because it’s called Patriot Place, and it’s right next door, it’s an extension of Gillette Stadium. It’s not. Of course no one can stop you from parking there, but since there’s a 2-hour limit, there’s sure to be a ticket on your windshield after the game. By not parking here you’ll save yourself a $150 fine.
Now, using $200 as a theoretical price point, you can also:
Save $134 - $155. You can reserve parking online at one of 2 spots (both are about 1 mile from the stadium) here.
Save $150. For 50 bucks, Foxborough Terminals is the next best thing to parking at Gillette. It’s about .8 miles away, and tailgating is allowed.
Save $160. Route 1 Liquor Mart is the cheapest alternative parking site in the area (.7 miles). Tailgating is permitted, but limited, I believe. Well at least you won’t have far to go if you need to restock on booze.
