After enjoying the layouts on the National Garden Railway Convention tours, or learning a new modeling, railroading, or gardening technique at one of the Clinic sessions:
When entering the garage, you will receive a white parking ticket you will need to get out of the garage.
Hotel Guests: Parking is free for people staying in the hotel. Be sure and ask for free parking and tell them you are part of the Garden Railway Convention. They will add it to your hotel room key card. You will use the hotel room key card instead of a credit card when you exit the garage. Put the white parking ticket in first, and then your hotel room key card. The machine will give you your hotel room key card back and raise the gate. Overnight parking is normally $27 per night, so be sure they add free parking to your hotel room key card when you check in.
Convention Attendees not staying in the hotel: Keep your white parking ticket with you. You can pick up a green parking ticket at our Registration/Information Desk. You validate the green parking ticket at a pay station by paying $6 with a credit card for day use only. When using the machine in the hotel, you will put your white parking ticket in first, and then the green parking ticket. You can also pay when leaving the garage in the same manner. There is no attendant at the exit, only a machine. Please use the pay station in the hotel to avoid causing a traffic jam of people trying to leave the parking lot.
