While there is some street parking available on Minnesota Avenue and adjoining streets, you might have to pay for street parking in one of the adjacent lots. There is also free parking in the lot across from the Holiday Inn and the Jack Reardon Center, but that is a block to the east of El Centro. If you require parking closer due to a disability, please let me know asap, so that we can make arrangements.
