PARKING

On Sundays, free parking is available in the Travelers Plaza Garage, located on Prospect Street next to The Hartford Club. Drive down the entrance, and inform the attendant that you're going to a Center Church event. The respondent will open the overhead door, providing you access to a wide area of well-lit spaces.

To return, walk down the driveway and push the intercom button to repeat the process and retrieve your vehicle. As your car approaches the overhead exit door, it will automatically open for you to drive out of the garage.

 

Street closure note:  Atheneum Square North is closed due to construction at The Travelers.  Please access the Plaza Garage directly via Prospect Street.

Kindly note: The garage does not close during bad weather.
