If you have ever tried to park on UNC’s campus, you know how difficult it can be. I once made a wrong turn trying to park near the Genome Sciences Building and ended up driving down a pedestrian walkway. For a brief moment, I had no idea why people were diving for cover. True story!
This message will help you to make sense of the parking situation on or around The Forest Theater. There are a few parking lots (and garages) on campus, and they are all accessible to you today. The closest lot to The Forest Theater is described below.
The Forest Theater (123 South Boundary Street, Chapel Hill, NC 27514) is located on the eastern part of campus and is sandwiched between Boundary Road (north-side of the theatre) and Country Club Drive (south side of theatre). The entrance to The Forest Theatre is on Country Club Road and directly across the street from Playmakers Repertory Theatre. There is a handful of street parking spots on Country Club Road. See yellow dots photo below.
Additional parking will be up the street from The Forest Theater on Boundary Road and Park Place. See photo below. The lot is located at the top of the photograph. You may park in this lot and walk to The Forest Theater. Once you arrive, you will be behind the stage and will need to check-in at any of our locations at the bottom or the top of the theatre.
Additionally, the Cobb Parking Deck is also an option. It is NOT circled in the diagram below, but it is labeled, right behind Playmakers on Paul Green Dr.
NOTE: Any guests with mobility issues can be dropped off at the entrance to The Forest Theatre on Country Club Road and taken through to their seats by our ushers.
