Forest City Gallery has one small parking lot on the east side of our building, which we share with Odyssey Records. If this lot is full, please do not park across the street from the gallery in the Anderson Brewery/Junction Climbing Centre. Instead, park along the north side of Elias Street, or cross the train tracks just beside our gallery and park in the parking lot for Cheshire London (marked on the map below). If you have any questions, volunteers will be on hand to direct you!
