Parking at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Travel Advisories

Please allow for extra travel time to your appointments due to traffic congestion caused by multiple construction projects around CHOP and Penn, including the partial closure of the Wood Garage. Read more below about parking at CHOP’s Philadelphia Campus.

Parking at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is available at three parking garages: A, B and C.

  • Main Hospital Parking A: Turn right from Civic Center Boulevard into Driveway A and follow signs to Garage A. This garage is for inpatient and Emergency Department families only.
  • Buerger Center Parking B: Turn left from Civic Center Boulevard into driveway B and follow signs to Garage B.
  • Wood Center and Seashore House Parking C: Turn right from Civic Center Boulevard into Driveway C and follow signs to Garage C. Note: Wood Center Garage is partially closed. You may be asked to park in another garage upon arrival.
    • If Wood Garage (Garage C) is full, please park in the Buerger Garage (Garage B).
    • Please park in the Main Hospital (Garage A) if you have been directed by your department prior to your visit.
    • Please be aware of construction barriers in the Wood Garage, as there is no parking access beyond these boundaries. There is an ongoing Wayfinding Effort throughout the campus to support navigation. Wood Garage will close completely in mid-November.
