Parking For Classes At Checkered Cottage
We know there are few things in life worse than trying to find a parking space in Downtown Kirkwood especially when you have a class that will keep you busy for more than the alotted 2 hours designated by the Kirkwood Police Dept. As of January 1, 2015, in an effort to keep everyone one step ahead of the law, we ask that you follow these guidelines:

On the day of class only, proceed to the Downtown Kirkwood Business office located at 130 E. Jefferson (just across Kirkwood Rd. on the south side of the street). There you can purchase a one day parking pass for a mere $5.00. This will allow you to park the entire day with no hassle.

Thanks to the generosity of our neighbors at St.Peters Parish, you may park on their lot which also gives you sanctuary from parking fines! Their lot is located at the corner of Clay and Jefferson.
We feel these are two good solutions that will keep you from running out in, what could be, inclement weather to move your car every two hours.

We are constantly trying to make your experience at the Cottage as enjoyable as possible. We hope that between the new classroom and these new suggestions for your parking needs, you'll find your class taking time will be much more relaxed and productive.
