Free Parking is available at the Armoury. Enter off of Farquhar Street and park in the parking lot but not against the wall where the parking is reserved. When the lot is full, the overflow parking will be inside the fenced compound. Enter the Armoury from the parking lot through the big doors and greeters will direct walkers up the stairs to the parade hall for registration and send off. Cars can be left at the Armoury until after the walk.
People entering the Armoury through the front doors off Wyndham Street will need to ring the buzzer and greeters will let them in.
Note that it is recommended that you park at the armoury as parking around HOPE House is limited.
