http://parkandgo.org/media/documents/parkmap.pdf Click that link and you'll see a more detailed map of the parking around downtown Lincoln. Pay attention towards the top, or North, top of the map. Having attended the Arena for basketball games and used the earlier referred to festival parking, which will be to the north of the Pinnacle Bank Arena, just south of where you see Haymarket Park, which is the baseball park for the A level pro team and U of Nebraska baseball/softball. I have used that parking before and it will get you right to the Arena through the pedestrian bridge. It takes you to an upper level entrance so you'll need to go down the steps when you get to the Arena itself. Just to the left, or West, of Memorial Stadium, is Stadium Drive Parking Garage and that might be a good suggestion. It's maybe 4 blocks from the north side of the Arena. Might also offer a good exit for getting out of town, if you are heading towards Omaha, by getting on Salt Creek Roadway. There will probably be some parking to the North of Memorial Stadium off of Salt Creek Roadway. That might be a 8-10 block walk to the Arena south entrance. Hope this helps, and that it makes sense! If anything I would suggest avoiding the few blocks just south and southeast of the Arena. Part of the road right in front of the south entrance to the Arena will be blocked off. That leads to some traffic congestion.
Brady - If the upper level entrance at the end of the pedestrian bridge is not open yet, will I be able to walk down to get around the Arena to another entrance? Supposed to go to a certain entrance at 4.
