Parking & Directions

Parking at the Nelson Odeon is limited, so in order to park safely please review the following options and plan to arrive a little early if you are a first-time visitor.

Off-the-road parking options:

When traveling past the Odeon north on Nelson Road, there are parking spots in the parking lot between The Odeon and Nelson Farms, in front of The Odeon, and in the driveways of the first two homes on the left, same side that The Odeon is on. Volunteers will be standing in front of The Odeon to direct you to the nearest open spot.
Tip: Just don’t block another vehicle in.

There is a parking lot at the Nelson United Methodist Church, about one city block east of the intersection on Route 20.
Tip: Nice spot for smaller vehicles, but tricky in the winter.

Directly across from the Odeon is a private parking area - it is strictly for the businesses and residents of the apartments.
Tip: Don’t even think about parking there!

Here's a not-to-scale parking map to help explain where the parking is. You can also download a PDF of this map here.
