Visitor Experience Changes:
It is Gateway Arch National Park’s goal to protect visitors and employees from transmission risks while continuing to remain a trusted, globally recognized destination. The National Park Service (NPS) has modified various elements of the park experience:
NPS encourages visitors to follow CDC guidance to reduce the spread of COVID-19, and take their own necessary precautions to protect themselves and the people around them:
Visitors to the Arch must enter the monument at the new glass west entrance, which faces the Old Courthouse. The Arch legs are exits only, providing great opportunities for photo ops with the Arch structure and direct access to the park grounds.
Gateway Arch National Park does not have designated on-site visitor parking. A list of parking locations near the park can be found at getaroundstl.com. Metered street parking is also available around the park.
For more information about the park’s phased approach, visit nps.gov/jeff or gatewayarch.com, call 877-982-1410, or check the park’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages @GatewayArchNPS. Updates about NPS operations will be shared at nps.gov/coronavirus.
