I am acutely aware of the parking challenges in Historic Downtown Franklin, TN.
Mainly because I have an office downtown Franklin located at 407C Main Street, Suite 205, Franklin, TN 37064 and want it to be as easy as possible for my clients to park and come to my office. This is a challenge though because Franklin is so beautiful and such a tourist destination.
There are so many cute shops and places to eat such as Puckett’s. Christmas and the cold weather make Downtown Franklin even more magical. Everyone wants to walk down Main Street, browse the shops and find something special for their loved ones.
There is parking on the streets and free parking garages located in The Fourth Avenue South Garage, 123 4th Ave. S, Franklin, TN 37064 andSecond Avenue Parking Garage, 108 2nd Ave S, Franklin, TN 37064. Remember the garages are forward parking only. You can’t back into you space or you will get an $11.00 ticket.
There are also paid lots in various spots in Downtown Franklin. There’s one across the street from the courthouse located at 135 4th Ave S, Franklin, TN 37064, there’s one behind Pieology on Main Street and there’s another one behind Starbucks.
Once you find a good place to park there are good times to have. Don’t let the good times be ruined by getting caught off guard with a parking ticket or warning like I was recently. I am grateful it was a warning so I wanted to pass on the information to save you from getting let down.
The citations are civil in nature, meaning you only have to pay money. They aren’t criminal in nature, meaning you can go to jail.
The citations look like the one I received pictured above. Hopefully I have saved you from getting a citation and you can enjoy Downtown Franklin citation free. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
