Parking at 2U
We are lucky to be located in the active and dynamic Lakeview neighborhood; however, street parking can be difficult. There is no parking lot at the church, but there are several available parking options just a short walk away:
- You can park on any of the streets around 2U that are labeled with the 386 permit sign during the day without having to use a permit: Barry Ave., Briar Ave. (one block north of Barry), Wellington Ave (one block south of Barry).
- You can park at a meter in the surrounding streets.
- Park for free in the Illinois Masonic Parking Garage during Sunday worship hours with the use of a chaser ticket obtained at church. Please park in #4 (East Parking Garage) which is on Halsted between Barry and Wellington. This free option is only available during Sunday worship and programming hours.
