We operate and own parking locations in every part of Center City, Rittenhouse Square, the Convention Center area, South Street, and Old City.

E-Z Park Inc. is owned and operated by the Spear Family. The Spear family has been engaged in the parking business since the early 1900s. Great Grandfather, Abe Spear owned and operated a livery stable on South 3rd Street, which later became Spearís Garage, one of the first commercial parking garages in the country.

The family business became known as E-Z Park Inc. in the early 1950s. Abeís son, Leon Spear, came home from WWII and joined the business. He took over the business, in the early 1950s, when Abe Spear retired. He incorporated the company and changed the name to E-Z Park Inc. During this time Leon Spear married his life, long, love Jeanette, who became his partner in the business. Their sons, Robert Spear and Harvey Spear, the current owners joined the business after finishing college. They took on a major expansion that changed Center City Philadelphia parking.

The family matriarch Jeanette Spear, now in her 80s and retired still plays a large role in the daily business. With unrivaled experience and business acumen, she consults on every major decision. Her pet project the has been "teaching" grandson Gregg Spear the business. Gregg joined the management team two years ago. Don't tell her, he has already worked in every department since he was a child and knows a lot about E-Z Park.

E-Z Park Inc. has vast experience in operating Municipal Parking lots and Garages, and Condominium Garages. We also have expertise in operating Valet Service parking for restaurants and retail stores. We own and operate surface parking lots in every part of Center City Philadelphia. Having a deep understanding of the parking business, from the customerís point of view, is essential to our success. A pleasant, parking experience along with satisfactory rates is our goal !!

Our unique knowledge of the Center City real estate market has been the key to our success. One of our greatest accomplishments was the assemblage of a formerly owned parking lot and our Corporate Main Office on the 1400 block of Spruce Street. The area has since been developed into the Kimmel Center for Performing Arts, the home of the Philadelphia Orchestra. We have owned and continue to operate several locations in close proximity to the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

With unparalleled understanding of the Philadelphia Real Estate Market and its growth potential; the Spear Brothers became involved in the Center City residential market. Twenty-five years ago they began investing in Center City apartment buildings. Some were renovated from mere shells, to creating first class buildings.

E-Z Park Inc. continues to pursue new growth opportunities by getting involved early in the parking component of new construction. This is in commercial buildings as well as the condominium market. Acquisition of land, leases, and management agreements is our top priority.

We operate and own parking locations in every part of Center City, Rittenhouse Square, the Convention Center area, South Street, and Old City.
