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 driveways of the first two homes on the left, same side as the Odeon is on. These places have the same owner as the Odeon.
Tip: Just don’t block another vehicle in.
Beyond these two homes there is a large lot on the left that can accommodate up to 30 vehicles.
Tip: This is the best bet.
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.
There is parking available at the Brookside Greenhouse - in the front only. This is about half a city block traveling south on Nelson Road.
Tip: Don’t block the driveway that runs along the side of the greenhouse.
There is limited parking between Nelson Farms and the Odeon, and only along the wall beside the Odeon. We would like to reserve these spots for folks with physical disabilities, so please use the other options. This lot may look empty and available, but Nelson Farms occasionally holds evening meetings.
Tip: Only park in this lot if directed by one of the fluorescent vest wearing, flashlight toting Odeon volunteers.
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, over the next year we're putting in our very own parking lot just to the north of the Nelson Odeon, until then, these are your best options. You can also download a PDF of this map here.
