Workshop Parking Information

Street Parking

Parking in the downtown shopping district is quite restrictive in Wheaton. On street parking Monday thru Saturday is limited to two (2) hours.  For this reason we suggest that for most workshops the parking garage directly across the street from the league is the best all day option.


Parking Garage (maximum parking hours)

3 hours........Lower Level, Street Level, and First Ramp
4 hours........Second Level
All day permit only parking on the remaining parking spots on up. Monday thru Friday.


To eliminate the need to shuffle you car midday, we suggest using the all day permit only level which is available to non permit drivers on Saturdays and Sundays.

If a workshop is scheduled for a Friday during the day, the Art League will provide parking permits that have been approved by the Wheaton Police Department.  It must be displayed in your car window on the permit level only.
