Directions & Parking for Children’s Rehabilitation Center - University of Minnesota, Minneapolis Campus
Directions to East River Road Parking Garage & River Flats hourly parking meters:
East River Road Parking Garage: There are 3 separate entrances to the ramp, but be sure you only enter the ramp as directed below, or you will have more difficulty finding the Children’s Rehabilitation Center building.
From the north: 35W southbound, exit the University / 4th Street exit, proceed east on University Ave., turning right on 14th Ave. S.E. Continue to the right and follow East River Road south. Just past the Weisman Museum parking, the road curves left (East). You will find the entrance to the River Flats parking on the right. And, just past that (part way up the hill) will be the entrance to the East River Road garage on your left.
From the south: 35W north to the U of MN / 3rd Street exit. Follow this to the right and cross the river on Washington Ave. Just over the bridge exit to the right to East River Road. (This exit will be just after the large silver art museum.) The road will curve around to the right. You may see an entrance to the ramp on your left, just after you exit, but DON’T enter there. Continue curving around (about ½ block) to a stop sign at a T in the road. At the stop sign turn left (south). Just after the road curves left (East), you will find the river flats parking entrance on the right. And, just past that (part way up the hill) will be the entrance to the East River Road garage on your left.
From the east or west: I-94 to the Huron Blvd. exit. Turn left at Fulton and follow this to East River Road. Turn right (west) & continue down the hill. You will find the East River Road Garage on your right, and a little further on your left the River Flats parking.
Directions into Children’s Rehabilitation Center Building:
Please note – the building address is Church Street, but you will be entering from East River Road.
The building is located just east of the East River Road Garage, sharing a common entrance with the Variety Heart Building from East River Road. Exit the garage on level C to reach East River Road. This will be the same area where you drove into the ramp. Children’s Rehabilitation Center will be directly in front of you. Follow the sidewalk to the entrance on East River Road. From this common entrance proceed straight ahead through the maroon door. The stairs are just inside the door on the right, or the elevators are further down the hall. You are entering on the first floor.
NOTE: the building is locked after 6 PM weekdays, and all weekend. Arrangements will be made for access during these times. This may include something stuck in the door, periodic checks by the course personnel, or a student staffed at the door. If you are not immediately able to enter, please wait a few minutes, and someone should be down to check. It is unlikely that the Church Street entrance will be open after hours, so please do not attempt to enter there.
The East River Road Garage has a maximum $12/day hourly charge, $6/day on weekends. The River Flats charges $1.50/hour with an eight-hour maximum and requires cash or a credit card at the pay station. Metered street parking is only for 2 or 4 hours, and is not recommended. There is no parking available on Church Street.
