Here’s how the program works: park in either the Central Business District (CBD) Parking Garage at 170 Centre Street, or at Jackson Street Parking Garage at 7 Jackson Street, patronize a business displaying the ParkMalden 4-Hour Validation window decals in its window and present your garage parking ticket to receive a validation sticker allowing you to extend your stay downtown.
The city will offer free parking for up to four hours through a validation program for Malden Center businesses.
