Parking & Transportation
PARKING AT DEL MAR PARK
Parking onsite at Del Mar will be limited and only available to those with official PRE-PAID parking credentials.

A detailed directional map showing gates and routes is printed on the back of each parking credential and included in your ticket packet.
Onsite parking passes will have a dedicated entry gate and specified routes entering and exiting the track. Routes will be directly supported by onsite parking staff and the local police department to facilitate and expedite anticipated heavy traffic on surrounding roads. Routing will be communicated in advance and onsite via signage, parking credentials, ticket inserts, and “Know Before You Go” emails. All routes will be supported in real-time utilizing Google Traffic and Waze Maps, in conjunction with local law enforcement.
