Heading to Open Streets and wondering where to park?
Street parking will be available on many streets surrounding the route, as well as parking in neighboring parking lots. Please be mindful when choosing your parking spot and remember Open Streets is a mile long+ route with no start and no end, so you can join the event from anywhere along the route!
Please do not park in the St. John’s Lutheran Church or Volunteer Ministry parking lots, as they are being used for another event.
ADA parking will be available in the back of the St. James Episcopal Church parking lot, which can be accessed from Folsom or Armstrong Ave.
