Parking at FPC

 

Easter Parking

We are anticipating a lot of guests joining us for Easter services on Sunday and we would like to make it as easy as possible to find a parking place. Please consider parking in one of our four alternate parking areas: Origin Bank, the Mann-Eye Institute, the Masonic Lodge and the MFAH Museum Parking Garage. Click here for a detailed Easter parking map.


 

Below are the details needed to make parking at FPC for Sunday worship or attending weekday activities a breeze.


 

Sundays

Parking for Sunday worship is available in the North Lot, surrounding surface streets, and by valet. In addition, those attending worship on Sundays may also park in the MFAH Parking Garage, located on Montrose between Bissonnet and Barkdull. Parking in the MFAH Garage is free during worship hours. Entrance to the FPC building can most easily be accessed by taking the garage elevator to street level and proceeding to the doors nearest the Mini Gym. The fee schedule for parking outside of worship hours can be found below.

 

Weekdays and Saturdays

Monday through Saturday, parking at FPC is located in the North Parking Lot. Specific instructions for this lot are below. In addition, the MFAH Parking Garage can be used at no cost for brief visits to campus. Short-term parking, 0-30 minutes, is available free of charge. This lot can be utilized for longer visits, either with a validation by the ministry or activity being attended (available from 6am-5pm on weekdays only) or at the rate noted below in the MFAH fee schedule. Please note that validations from FPC are not available on Saturdays.


Additional Parking Information

 

Valet

For those with limited mobility or facing other challenges with parking, FPC offers free valet parking every Sunday morning from 7:30am-12:30pm. Valet service can be accessed from the covered driveway outside of the Christian Education entrance on Oakdale (just east of Palm Court).

 

FPC Houston North Lot (Corner of Main and Oakdale)

The North Lot has a single entrance located off of Oakdale St. An onsite parking attendant is present to assist with parking questions and monitor traffic on weekdays from 6am-5pm. During this time, parking is limited to FPC and Presbyterian School employees, ministries, members, and guests, and a limited number of MFAH staff. To ensure there is adequate parking for individuals coming to campus, drivers entering this lot may be asked with whom they are meeting or what event they are attending. Parking in this lot may also be restricted to FPC and Presbyterian School employees, ministries, members, and guests after hours or on weekends for special events, at which time signage will be present. If you are returning to this lot after hours, please feel free to request a Security Escort from either the Welcome Center or Palm Court entrance.

The North Lot is available for Sunday worship with no changes.

 

Other Parking & Drop-Off Options

A limited number of parking spots for the disabled, those with limited mobility, and for general use are available around the perimeter of the FPC campus and are designated with any restrictions. For the convenience of those visiting the campus or transporting heavy items, drop-off via the covered Welcome Center or Palm Court driveways is also available.
