Once you arrive at Children's Hospital, follow these directions to the Wood Center parking garage.

Wood Center (Curie Blvd and Civic Center Boulevard)

Proceed on 34th Street through the first two lights. At the third light, turn right onto Osler Circle at the Children's Hospital Wood Center and Children's Seashore House sign and proceed straight to the security booth. The security guard will direct you to park underneath the Hospital. The garage is open 24 hours and can accommodate vehicles under 6' in height. Elevators and stairs connect the garage to the Hospital. Tall vans may be parked in the circle in front of the Wood Building. See the security guard for instructions.

Discount parking for parents

Parking is $3.00 for parents and families. Take your parking ticket and ask for it to be validated at our Musculoskeletal Registration Desk.

Getting to Physical Therapy from the parking garage

You can take the elevator from any level of the parking garage. Take the elevator to the 2nd floor Wood and follow the signs in the hallway to "Physical/Occupational Therapy - Musculoskeletal Registration Desk." You will now be on the second floor of Children's Seashore House. At any time, ask a parking attendant or security guard for assistance if you need help finding your way.


We ask that you arrive 15 to 20 minutes prior to your appointment time to allow enough time to register. Registration may take 5 to 10 minutes. During registration please have the following information ready:
