Cedar Crest events are usually located on the Terrace Level of the Independent Living apartment areas. It's for your convenience that we recommend you park close to the apartment buildings. There is a surface parking lot connected to the apartments. It can be reached via the first driveway on your right if you are coming from the North (via State St.), or the third driveway on your left if you arrive from the South (via Kellogg Ave). Watch for blue/green flags near the designated driveway. NOTE: GPS systems will route you to the Main Entrance of the Skilled Care Center. Parking near that area will require you to walk farther to the event site than using the convenient access off the apartment parking lot.
