Parking at Unity Church
Unity Church maintains an off-street parking lot one block east and one block south of the church on the corner of Saint Albans and Portland Avenues. On Sundays, the parking lot north of Obama Elementary School is also available. Persons with disabilities will find handicapped parking in the lot immediately east of the church on Holly Avenue.
The City of St Paul’s parking rules say that “Parking is prohibited within 20 feet of a crosswalk at an intersection.” If you park too close to the corner, you may get a ticket!
In the event of a Snow Emergency on Sundays, we will send a church-wide email and post signs reminding you of where you can and cannot park. We encourage you to park in our lot at Portland and St. Albans or behind Obama School so that you won’t be ticketed and so the streets can be cleared.
Please DO NOT park in the River of Life parking lot located on the southeast corner of Portland and Grotto.
Unity Church has a commitment to accessibility which includes parking near the church for members and friends who have mobility issues. Therefore, each Sunday, the entire parking lot located directly east of the church is now reserved for handicapped parking, assisted parking, and electric vehicle charging.
Parking for everyone else is available in Unity’s lot on the corner of Portland and St. Albans, on the street, and on Sundays in the Obama Elementary parking lot.
While the entire lot is restricted parking on Sundays only, please continue to observe and respect posted parking signs during the week.
