FORT WORTH, Texas (August 30, 2023) – Artisan Circle, the urban village in the heart of Fort Worth’s cultural district, announced today the launch of a new innovative parking system designed to enhance the overall experience for visitors. Effective immediately, Artisan Circle’s five parking garages will provide free parking for visitors with validation exclusively from Artisan Circle merchants.

As part of their commitment to the Artisan Circle revitalization plan, Younger Partners recognizes the importance of convenient parking. The introduction of this new parking system aims to streamline the overall experience and further solidify Artisan Circle as a destination of choice for locals and visitors alike.

With more than 1,500 retail parking spaces in its five garages, Artisan Circle’s new parking system ensures ample availability to accommodate the needs of all patrons. This initiative offers covered parking without any added expenses when patrons visit their favorite Artisan Circle merchants.

“We are excited to launch this new parking system, which aligns perfectly with our commitment to revitalizing Artisan Circle and providing an exceptional experience for our valued patrons,” said Kathy Permenter, co-managing partner of Younger Partners. “By offering free parking with merchant validation, we aim to enhance convenience and contribute to the ongoing growth and success of Artisan Circle.”

To enjoy the benefits of free parking, visitors simply scan a QR code and register their vehicle into the system – enabling them access to electronic validation at any participating Artisan Circle merchant. The online validation will enable them to exit the parking garages without stopping or incurring any fees.
