You can generally find metered parking nearby if you will be visiting us for less than two hours, especially on Washington Street above the Providence Public Library.

We provide free parking for participants in our classes at the Civic Center Parking Garage at 165 Washington Street. This garage is next to the Trinity Repertory Theater and just around the corner (a three-minute walk) from the entrance at One Empire Street.
