Parking Information

Please do not park to the east of the Center.  We recommend parking in the south parking lot for short term parking.  For all day parking please utilize street parking on the streets to the north of the Center or paid parking at the Ballard Locks.

Important: Also, when parking in the south parking lot please do not park in front of the Center Van or the dumpster.  It costs us money and staff every time a driver does this and it can stop garbage pickup and delay Center trips.

The following services are useful for arranging transportation to the Center or other appointments. All of these services including Seattle Metro stop directly in front of the Center on 32nd Street.
