Southwest Parking

Where can you park for Community Education classes at Southwest High School? See here.

For security reasons, we limit the number of doors that are open in the building, both during the day and night. For Swim lessons and sports classes, enter Door #17 on Abbott Avenue. For all other classes, enter Door #1 on West 47th Street at Beard Avenue. Our office is in Room 101 in the new center building inside Door #1.

Two types of parking exist on the 4600 and 4700 blocks of Abbott, Beard, Chowen, and Drew Avenues: 

  • One side of each of these blocks is restricted to neighborhood residents who have permits, between 6:00 am and 9:00 p.m., on school days.
  • The other side of these blocks will be open to all drivers- some or all of the day. Students, Community Education participants, and other school users may only park on the open side of the street.

Signs indicate what type of parking is in effect on each side of each block. Observe the signs. Parking without a permit on the side of the street that requires permits may result in a ticket or tow. Thank you for respecting the parking requests of our Southwest neighbors. We look forward to seeing you in class!
