As many of you know, parking is limited at Barnsdall and free spaces on the Hill often fill up within the first half-hour of any event. There is off-site parking at Kaiser Permanente at 1549 Edgemont, about a 5 minute walk to the wine tasting. If you arrive after 6pm we’d suggest going straight to the Kaiser Edgemont Lot. You can also get here via Metro or Bus to the Vermont/Sunset red line station. We of course encourage walking, biking, and carpooling! Click here to download the Parking Map PDF.
