So far, parking seems to be pretty easy to find at Rivendell. The side streets do not require permits, and there is free parking at the Senn High School Lot a few blocks away. The closest el stop is Bryn Mawr on the red line. Walk west to Broadway, then northwest up Ridge to 5779. Convenient bus stops are at Broadway and Bryn Mawr, or Clark and Ridge. There is also free parking at the Senn High School lot, which can ONLY be accessed from Thorndale, a one-way street running west. You can turn onto Thorndale from Broadway, just north of Moody’s Pub, or go north on Glenwood just east of Rivendell, and turn left onto Thorndale.
Collaboraction is right off the Blue Line (The Damen stop). Please note there is also a Damen stop on the Brown Line, and you DON’T want that. If you are driving, give yourself some extra time. Street parking is available, with metered spots close by and unpaid parking a little further south on Damen, near the park. Valet parking is available on Friday and Saturday nights. The valet parking is not specific to the theatre. It’s at various restaurants in the neighborhood. We generally recommend Chop Shop, 2033 W. North Ave – Chicago IL 60647 and Forno (the restaurant on the corner opposite us). I believe the Valet parking is $10. There is parking in the ally that runs along the el tracks south of North, and again where the tracks go underground. You might want to check out those areas as well. This is paid, metered parking.
