- Where should I park?
We are located on the 3rd floor of the office building. There is a ramp to the left of the front doors (next to the café entrance) for wheelchair access. However, during bad weather the front of the building doesn’t get a lot of sun and can be very slippery. If it is icy or treacherous, PLEASE use the back parking lot. It is better maintained and has wheelchair access as well. The back parking lot is located on the 1st floor of the building, so you need to take the elevator to the 3rd floor. We are located opposite of the café. First door to the left.
