Franklin's Gardens has over 2,000 spaces available across six car parks, all within easy walking distance of the stadium itself. Given that Franklin's Gardens is in a residential area of the town, the Saints management strongly urges all supporters to use the club's car parks. Should they choose not to do so, supporters must park with due care and respect to the needs of local residents and businesses.
