City of Haverhill Parking Services Division


The goal of the Parking Services Division in the City of Haverhill is to provide you with a clean, safe, and customer friendly parking environment.

The City is responsible for the overall management of nearly 1,000 City owned parking spaces in the Central Business District with on-street parking, 11 parking lots, the Herbert H. Goecke Parking garage and the back-in-angle parking area on Bailey Boulevard. Paid parking operations are run by Laz Parking, a private parking contractor. 

The MVRTA is responsible for the Parking lot and Garage on Granite Street adjacent to Haverhill Station as well as the parking lot adjacent to Bradford Station.


The map shows the parking lots in downtown Haverhill.

The Central Business District (CBD) parking plan provides many important benefits:

  • promotes parking turnover in the CBD
  • assists with relieving traffic congestion throughout the downtown which stimulates residential and business opportunities
  • provides funding through the paid parking program to offset parking expenses.

To ensure the compliance with the latest restrictions, always be sure to follow the posted signs.
