PARKING

(please refer to the local area map at top of page)
There is plenty of on and off street parking in Falls Church. The closest public lot is across Park Place from the Theatre - directly behind Greenscapes garden supply store. When parking please keep in mind the following:

Public parking spaces are now painted (on the ground) in light blue, and have "2 Hour Parking" painted on them (also in blue). You will not be towed from any public space. This applies to off-street parking only. Regular on-street parking is not painted.
If an (off-street) space is not painted blue, you may get towed if you park there. The most un-friendly lot is the one directly across from the front of the Theatre, where the 7-Stars convenience store is located. If you park anywhere along the length of that lot, you will be towed.

* Pay attention to the signs - particulary when parking off street. Some private lots are posted tow zones.
* There is no parking on the main streets in Falls Church, but most side streets allow parking.
* There is no parking in the Applebee's restaurant lot, the Kaiser Permanente Hospital lot or the Park Washington office complex lot.
