If you've been frustrated with parking in the Haymarket, you're not alone.

"There's really not a whole lot of parking."

"You see a lot of people searching for parking," say a few people in the Haymarket Wednesday.

We spoke with Park 'N Go officials. They weren't able to speak on camera, but they say they're working on a solution.

There are two new parking garages are being built, that will bring about 16–hundred additional parking spots to the area.

They're scheduled to be done between July and August, but depends on the weather.

Those garages will be built between Q and P streets along Pinnacle Bank Arena Drive.

Another garage at Canopy and N streets, right next to the Harris overpass is just a few weeks away from opening.

But until then, here's where you can park:

You probably won't have much luck at the Red One garage right across the street from the Arena because most spots are sold in advance.

But the Haymarket Garage at 9th and Q is close and has 407 spots. Park 'N Go says the Marketplace Garage at 10th and Q is also a good option.

A small service lot on Canopy and O is open for parking too.

Also, don't forget about the Festival Lot just north of the Arena, it has 1400 parking spaces.

The pedestrian bridge connects it to the Arena, and that is now open. To get there, just take West O, make a right on Sun Valley Blvd., then go north on Line Drive. You'll see signs that say "event parking."

But even with all the parking spots, people in the area say it's just not enough.

"Sometimes instead of parking a couple blocks away, I have to park 7 or 8 blocks away. It turns a 5 minute walk into a 15 or 20 minute walk."

So what's the short–term solution?

Park 'N Go says leave early, plan ahead, and be patient.
