East Lot - Enter off Woodland Street

The sidewalk leads to our front entrance, which will allow easier access for customers with wheelchairs or walkers. Although this lot has signs reading “Staff Parking Only” and “Permit Required” College Lanes customers are permitted to park here. If you do receive a ticket, please bring it to the lane attendant and we will resolve the issue for you.

Back Lot - Enter via the hospital Emergency Room driveway

This area offers additional parking if the East Lot is full. The back door (to the right of the Dumpster) leads to the hallway with the Billiards room. There are stairs in this hallway, so guests may want to use the East Lot when possible.
