The Carnegie Center relies on street parking. Street parking is generally available on either side of Gratz Park or neighboring streets.

As a service to our guests, the Carnegie Center has designed a map of 240 parking spots within a 5-minute walk of the Carnegie Center. Copies of the “Guide to Local Parking” are available at the front desk, or you may download a PDF by clicking here.

We hope to see you soon at the Carnegie Center, home to the Kentucky Writers Hall of Fame and writers and readers of all levels.
