Parking - Parking may be available on the 3rd level of the Central Park parking structure (public parking area only), located on the corners of Main and Ryman. Bring the parking garage stub to Municipal Court for validation when your attendance is confirmed. If you plan to park on the street in Missoula’s downtown area, please familiarize yourself with the meter system in advance, to make parking easier on the day of the trial. The court will not validate parking receipts/stubs if you park at a meter on the street.
