Where should I park?

We have a small lot off of Mulberry St. that can be used for those with mobility issues.  Most of our folks park on the side streets on Mulberry and West Chestnut.  

Where are the ADA accessible entrances?

Our front entrance on West Chestnut St. has a ramp to the left of the stairs that leads to you to an ADA accessible entrance.  Additionally, off the parking lot, past the courtyard with our labyrinth, there is another ADA accessible entrance.  Once you enter this door, there is an elevator directly to the left.
