Head South on 15th Avenue three blocks to NE 41st Street. Turn left at Gate #1 into the Central Plaza Garage. Stop at the gatehouse inside the garage for directions and a parking permit.

Directions to the Padelford Parking Garage:

From I-5, take the #168B exit (Bellevue/Kirkland) to State Route 520. Take the first exit off SR520; the sign will point to Montlake Boulevard NE. Turn left onto Montlake Blvd. and continue North past Husky Stadium. Move into the far left lane to prepare for the fork in road. When the road splits, take the left fork onto 25th Avenue NE. Proceed to the traffic light and turn left onto Pend Oreille Road. Head up the hill to Gate #3; stop at the gatehouse for directions and a parking permit.
