Thank you again to our April Parking Sponsor
The WAC Garage is less than a block from the Club - on Sixth Avenue. It is across Union St. ½ block North of the clubhouse same side of the street. The self-park, underground, facility is a part of e-Park, the downtown guidance system that makes it easy to know how many spaces are available in the garage. Be sure you plan to arrive early as parking is open to the public, although you will be given validation.
WE CANNOT VALIDATE IN THE HILTON GARAGE or any other facilities.
