A little FYI for those of you who drive into games at Wrigley Field and rue the traffic …
Today the Chicago Cubs announced that they’re opening a new, 1000-car parking lot at at 3900 N. Rockwell St., just east of the Chicago River immediately south of Irving Park Road. That’s about two miles west of Wrigley, and the lot will operate during night and weekend games.
It’ll be manned by Cubs security, and it’s free. Also free? The shuttle to take you to the ballpark and back to the lot.
The subject of parking has come up repeatedly as the Cubs have looked to renovate Wrigley Field and the surrounding area, while having the least possible negative impact on the Lakeview neighborhood. As part of the Wrigley renovation approval process last year, the Cubs agreed to take a look at parking issues, and provide more free options like this.
So, there you go. Take advantage. Save yourself $20 and a headache.
