Ballpark Village parking spots are now available

ST. LOUIS -- Got wheels and two sawbucks? Then Ballpark Village has a slot for you.


The St. Louis Cardinals announced that more than 400 parking spots are now available in Ballpark Village, across the street from Busch Stadium. And you thought that 10-acre lot would never get developed.


Some additional paving work remains to be done, but $20 will get you a parking space now.


"This is a significant construction milestone that will improve the game-day experience by providing additional convenient parking for our fans," said William DeWitt III, president of the Cardinals.


Meanwhile, Ballpark Village development continues after ground was broken in February. Most of the structural steel work is done on the first phase of Ballpark Village, which is on schedule to be completed by Opening Day 2014, according to the Cardinals.


"It is exciting to see the daily construction progress on Ballpark Village as we all look forward to Opening Day 2014," DeWitt said.
