Parking validation is only good for the underground parking at the Charles River Plaza/Cambridge Street Garage at 165 Cambridge St. Entrance to the underground garage is between the Charles River Plaza Shopping Center (Whole Foods/CVS) and Au Bon Pain, near the intersection of Blossom St. and Cambridge St. Yellow tickets from the surface lot at Whole Foods cannot be validated.
