Make sure you’re showing off your Pass

We ask that you always display your parking pass so that we can ensure that Priority Paid Parking is always available to those members who pay,.

Passes are easily hung from your rearview mirror and can easily be transferred between vehicles owned by the member paying for parking.

Need a pass? Just ask one of the Common Ground Team members.

The Odd Interruption

In the rare event that there is a funeral taking place at The Kirk, you will not be able to park in the Long’s Hill parking lot. If you are parked there prior to the funeral, you will be asked to relocate. We will give members as much notice as possible so that they can make alternate parking arrangements during these events.
