My Recommendation on Parking + Experience with SpotHero


From my experience using SpotHero, I find better parking rates than what is directly next to a venue if I’m willing to walk about a half mile. Most of the time, the parking options on SpotHero are about 30% less than what the parking garages and lots next to a venue go from. In fact, the further you are willing to park from the venue, the less you will need to pay. It comes down to the personal preference of how much you want to pay vs walk.


The entire process is straightforward. You click on the listing above and select which game you need parking for. Then, you purchase the lot you want to park at and get a barcode to scan when you get to that parking lot. Downloading the SpotHero app is the best way to use this service since everything you need will be on your phone.


If you are looking to save money on your next event at Desert Diamond Arena, consider getting unofficial parking.


Desert Diamond Arena Handicap Parking Spots

Fans looking for handicap parking can head over to Lot G, B, J, and Yellow garages in the arena. Handicap parking comes on a first-come basis, so it’s best to arrive early events. Fans will need to present a valid parking pass and placard to keep their car in the handicap spaces too. In addition to parking, fans can take advantage of the drop-off and pick-up station at the venue. Head over to the Westgate Entertainment District for pick-ups and drop-offs.


Can you Tailgate in the Parking Lots?

There is no tailgating at the venue, but many bars are close to the arena. Fans can check out McFadden’s Glendale, Bar Louie, Whiskey Rose, and Yard House.  In addition to those bars, fans also head over to Fat Tuesday, Bananas Ranas Restaurant, Applebee’s Grill and Bar, and The Nest before and after a game.


Should I Take Public Transportation?

Similar to NFL games at the University of Phoenix, it’s best to drive to this venue. A public transportation opportunity is to use Uber, Lyft, or a taxi service to the game. Fans can use the Black lots for the drop-off and pick up areas for their Ubers and Lyfts.
