During day time? weekdays? No. I think there is free street parking on Sundays, and after 6 pm.

After 6 pm and on Sundays on the north side of Capitol Park. Saturday and Sunday is free on the south side of the park.

Otherwise it's metered, you pay 25¢ per 12 minutes at a kiosk and put a sticker on your window. There are garages in the area for longer term parking.

Just reread initial post. Yes, I belive there is free parking within ten blocks south and east of the park.

How long do you plan to park? Yes there are free parkings at some spots, but for limited time. Typically for an hour, or 2, except for some permit holders (for local residents). Parking there to take a look at the Capitol Building may be okay. But longer than that may be an issue. (Assuming day time).

e.g. this spot is on Capitol Mall:

Within ten blocks is a large area, and there certainly is free parking in that confine.

My barber is located near 16th and P Streets, and parking is free in that area, during business hours. (Capitol is at what would be about 12th and M St, if they existed.) I think more of the free parking is located towards the east side of the Capitol, and towrds the south side. This is much more residential. North of the Capitol is the courthouse/law enforcement/county HQ areas, and nothing is free there. West of the Cap is more businesses, and not much free. Check areas of O, P and Q Streets east of 15th.

I think you can still park at the downtown mall garage for 3 hrs with validation. We usually get our validation from Macy's, without needing to buy anything.
