The Johns Hopkins Children’s Center has several patient and visitor parking facilities open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, conveniently located adjacent to The Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children's Center at Johns Hopkins Hospital and the David M. Rubenstein Child Health Building, the location of our Pediatric Specialty Clinics and the Harriet Lane Clinic. The Orleans Street Garage across the street from the hospital's main entrance at 1800 Orleans Street is the most convenient and preferred garage for both facilities.

Courtesy shuttle service and  walking security escorts are available for added convenience and safety.  

When using the garages, please carry your parking ticket with you as you will need it to pay for parking before returning to your vehicle. Patients and families who need parking over an extended period of time should consider purchasing coupons at a discounted rate (refunds are not offered for unused coupons).
