Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance do I need to request a reservation?

Yes. 27 parking spaces will be available for your group members and/or contractors.  These parking spaces are at the metered spaces on Long St., adjacent to the facility (there are 29 spots, but 2 must be available for employee parking).  Once these 27 spaces have been utilized, the remaining guests will have to park in nearby garages/lots. The provided parking spaces are app based meters.

If you notice a car parked in one of these spots that do not belong to your event, let a staff member know and they will have it handled accordingly.
