This small lot allows for free parking on evenings and weekends. Distance to Performance Center: 120 yd.

    Finally, use of unmetered spaces is encouraged. If possible, Rockport Music asks that you consider avoiding metered parking during the day (evening concerts are fine), as merchants and restaurants depend on these spaces for their patrons.
