Parking when visiting our home at Smyrna

As well as public transport services

Parking, no matter where you live or visit, when it comes to residential areas, is always an issue.

We are situated in a residential areas, therefore, we mist be mindful of our neighbours at all times. Parking is first come, first served, must be in appropriate / lawful parking areas and owners of vehicles must be mindful of the residents at all times.

Smyrna Parking

Residential car park:
There is a residential car park to the south of the building. This is adjacent to the side / accessible entrance. When using this car park, please park in designated bays only and practice considerate parking. Do not block in other vehicles in, even it is for a moment, you will be asked to move.

Please take a moment to review the map shown here.

The yellow hatched area by the ramp / side entrance to Smyrna must be kept clear at all times as this is a fire exit, an accessible entrance for those that need it to be and an easy entry for everyone. The front steps can be a bit of a challenge, even for able-bodies people.

The red hatched area you can see must be kept clear at all times. Parking is not permitted in these areas.
