When coming to classes or events at Loudoun, you will need to obtain a FREE parking permit from the George Mason receptionist located in Suite 130.  The permit will be good through the Fall 2015 term.  After obtaining the parking permit and placing it on your dashboard, it is best to park in the East Lot. In the unlikely event there are no spaces in the East Lot, please park in the yellow striped student spaces as indicated on the map below:

PARKING AT OLLI’S THREE PRIMARY LOCATIONS

FAIRFAX: Tallwood (OLLI headquarters/primary class site)

Above: parking options at Tallwood.

Parking at Tallwood. Be careful on Roberts Road approaching Tallwood from the south because the hill obstructs the view of oncoming traffic. There is a limited amount of paved or gravel parking in front of and behind Tallwood, including several spaces restricted to vehicles with handicapped licenses/tags and spaces reserved for staff/instructors. Many parking spaces are available in the adjacent swimming pool parking lot, leased by OLLI for members’ use during class hours. Overflow parking is available on streets in the neighborhood – both to the east directly across Roberts Road and to the north on the first street, Forest Avenue – but please be courteous to residents by leaving room next to driveways (Fairfax County code says no parking within 10 feet of a driveway); also, watch for no-parking signs. Caution: be VERY careful when walking across Roberts Road; wait until you are sure you have plenty of time to cross.


RESTON: United Christian Parish (primary class site)

Above: Key parking locations at United Christian Parish.

Parking at United Christian Parish. OLLI has a new “home” site in Reston – the United Christian Parish (UCP) church, where most classes on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays will be held. UCP is located about 1/2 mile from Lake Anne Plaza.
Important note: The church also hosts a fairly large preschool program in which parents drop off and pick up children at the same entrance we will be using. For morning OLLI classes, you should plan to arrive no earlier than 9:20. The classes start at 9:40, so you will be fine if you arrive 5-10 minutes prior to that.
To enter the parking lot by car, use the new [east] entrance on North Shore Drive where you see the yellow OLLI sidewalk sign. This is only an entrance, not an exit. Approximately 49 parking spaces are available between the street and the entrance door in the back of the building. The ones closest to the door should be saved for OLLI members who would have difficulty walking; we will have two “OLLI Preferred Parking” signs in the parking area closest to the door. There are also five marked handicapped parking spaces for people with handicapped plates/tags.
When leaving the parking lot by car, there is only one exit: Use the entrance/exit on the other side of the church building (not the entrance with the OLLI sign) – the one that is adjacent to the Lake Anne Elementary School located just to the west of UCP.
Additional on-street parking is available along the curb of North Shore Drive and on Fairway Drive, the north-south road leading into North Shore Drive in front of the church. OLLI members are encouraged to use caution when parking along North Shore Drive and to use the side closest to the church whenever possible.


Special Announcement for Parking in Reston:

  • Please do not park near the church doors used by OLLI prior to 9:20 am

Park near the OLLI entrance to the parking lot (to the left of the entrance as you face the doors)

Parking is also available on North Shore Drive near the stairs to the rear entrance to the OLLI lobby near the coffee pots. This door (and patio) is now open to OLLI members for access and socialization
.

  • Please do not cut in front of the car-line to access handicapped and front entrance spaces prior to 9:20 am.

Just park and wait in the lower parking lot near the OLLI entrance to the parking lot. As soon as the car-line has finished dropping off children at 9:20, you may move your car to your preferred parking space.

Do not park to the right of the church entrance as you face the doors unless you have a handicapped permit (and then only after 9:20 am). See photos on next slide

  • Teacher/Speakers — special instructions

You may park near the front entrance only if you arrive before 9 am. Otherwise, please follow the parking rules for OLLI members.

Please do not release students until the end of the class period, especially for the second period class from 11:50 to 1:15.

Following this guidance will help ensure the safety of the day-care children with  whom we share the UCP facility.


LOUDOUN:  Starting this fall the Loudoun courses will be held at Mason in Loudoun, 21335 Signal Hill Plaza, Sterling, VA 20164. It is across Route 7 from the Potomac Run Shopping Center. OLLI members will need to pick up a FREE parking permit from the Mason Loudoun office. The permit will allow members to park closer to the building.
