Parking at CHOP’s Philadelphia Campus

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.

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

Off-campus parking lots and garages are also available nearby. 

On-campus parking options: 

  • Main Hospital Parking A: When traveling east on Civic Center Boulevard, turn right into Driveway A at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Main Hospital and follow signs to Garage A. This garage is for inpatient and Emergency Department families only.
  • Buerger Center Parking B: When traveling east on Civic Center Boulevard, pass the Main Hospital, then turn left into driveway B and follow signs to Garage B. 
  • Wood Center and Seashore House Parking C: When traveling east on Civic Center Boulevard, turn right into Driveway C and follow signs to Garage C.
    • Note: the Wood Center Garage is partially closed during renovations. You may be asked to park in another garage upon arrival. Additional notes:
      • If the Wood Garage (Garage C) is full, please park in the Buerger Garage (Garage B).
      • Only park in the Main Hospital (Garage A) if you have been directed to do so 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. The Wood Garage is tentatively scheduled for full permanent closure starting in early 2022.
