Prudential Center (The Rock) is home to the NHL New Jersey Devils and NCAA Seton Hall Pirates teams. The address sits out in 25 Lafayette Street, AKA 165 Mulberry St, New Jersey. In addition to sports games, you will find plenty of concerts and events at the arena year round.
Here are the parking tips for the venue!
Official Parking around Prudential Center
There are several parking garages within walking distance of Prudential Center to use for a game or concert. Some of those places include the Parking Deck, Green 3 and 4, Green Street Garage, and Green 7. Parking rates at these places will vary depending on the event you are seeing at the arena. Be sure to visit the official parking page of the New Jersey Devils with this link. Alos, you can buy parking at these lots using this link.
My Recommendation on Parking + Experience with SpotHero
I can save about 30% on parking when I use SpotHero over the lots next to an arena. SpotHero has a map of the unofficial parking lots within walking distance of the venue. While I have not used the service in Newark, I have used it in cities like Boston going to a game. If you are okay with walking about 10-15 minutes from your parking spot to the arena, you can find better parking rates than the ones next to the stadium. Plus, you can reserve your parking space ahead of time and drive there directly, so you can bypass the traffic congestion near the venue since you aren’t going there.
Prudential Center Handicap Parking Spots
There are handicap spaces for fans to use for events and games at the venue. Handicap space parking come at a first-come and first-served basis, so plan to arrive early. Fans will need to present a valid placard and parking pass to park in these ADA spaces at the hockey arena.
Can you Tailgate at the Stadium?
There is no tailgating at the arena’s parking lots, but there are plenty of bars in downtown Newark to check out before or after a game. Some bars include Three Levels Lounge, Novelty Burger, Zack’s Oak Bar, and Edison Ale House. In addition to those bars, fans also enjoy going to PJ Ryan’s, Hell’s Kitchen Lounge, and Market Street Bar and Grill.
Should I Take Public Transportation?
There are plenty of public transportation ways to move around downtown Newark to get to the venue. The NJ Transit offers multiple bus routes and six rail lines to downtown Newark, New Jersey. PATH (Port Authority Trans-Hudson) offers 24/7 rail transportation between Newark, Hoboken, Jersey City, downtown Manhattan, and New York City in general to the venue. PATH’s Newark terminal (Newark Penn Station) is a short walk to the venue, so it’s convenient.
Finally, fans can use Uber and Lyft to get to the hockey arena too.
