The City of Orlando’s Downtown Development Board has launched Park DTO, a new program that provides free parking and complimentary valet when visiting participating restaurants downtown. The program provides convenient and greater access to the amenities in the downtown core.

The program aims to:

  • Support small businesses and ensure their success in downtown
  • Improve parking accessibility for downtown patrons
  • Encourage the preservation of downtown businesses by temporarily funding parking fees, thus increasing customer experience and visitation.

The Park DTO program was developed as a strategic initiative of the Downtown Orlando Community Redevelopment Area Plan (DTOutlook). The DTOutlook plan recognizes the retention of small businesses as crucial for ensuring the success of the redevelopment in the Downtown Development Area. Additionally, DTOutlook highlights the importance of enhancing parking accessibility and exploring innovative solutions to optimize options for downtown patrons.

Participants can download the free ParkMobile app to find free parking downtown and reserve spots ahead of time. Through this program, participants can receive up to two hours of parking at any on-street metered and non-metered spaces downtown by using the ParkMobile code: ParkDTO. This code can be used a maximum of four times per account. Promotion codes are valid 24 hours a day, seven days a week. (On-street metered and non-metered parking is free after 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and all day on Sunday). Any amount owed in excess of the validated time is the responsibility of the person parking.

The program also includes complimentary valet for customers at participating restaurants between 5:30 and 9 p.m. For a list of restaurants, and more information about the Park DTO program, visit The program will run until December 31, 2023, or when funds run out.
