PARKING OPTIONS
There are two options for parking at Rosewood Park:

(1) FREE STREET PARKING
From the months of October through April you can park for free on various parts of Roger Williams Avenue (just west of Sheridan).

Please double check all street signage in the area that you park.

Then walk east on Roger Williams Avenue to Rosewood Park street to the Rosewood Park parking lot area where we will meet. The walk is about about 3-5 minutes.

(2) PARKING LOT
If you would prefer to park in the location where we are going to meet, park in the Rosewood Park parking lot. The cost to park in the lot is $15 per hour. A pay box is located in the parking lot. Please make sure to put your parking receipt in your car window, as the Highland Park police are aggressive with ticketing. The cost of a parking violation is $75, so it's worth paying the $15.

OTHER PARKING NOTES
Please do not confuse Rosewood Park with Rosewood Beach. Do not park at the Rosewood Beach parking lot. While we may be shooting in the beach area, the beach parking is only for Highland Park residents with a valid parking sticker. In addition, this area is not close to the initial area that we will be meeting you for your photo session.
