Take a left at the first light on Lafayette Street onto Charles Street. On Charles Street, go under the railroad bridge and take the first left into the parking lot which is located behind the GWRC building.

Beginning Monday, January 5, 2015, the Charles Street entrance into our parking lot will be closed due to maintenance and will remain closed for approximately 30 days. Please enter the parking lot from Princess Anne Street entrance located immediately after the GWRC building. All cars using our parking lot will be utilizing the same exit/entrance. Our parking is located behind the GWRC building in the area marked “GWRC Staff Only.” You may park in any of the spaces marked for staff. Once those have filled, then the next option is the parking garage located at 600 Sofia Street. The garage is approximately 3 ½ blocks away and the first 3 hours are free.
