Parking Information

Free parking is available at several parking lots on the Anoka-Ramsey Community College campus. Other parking is also available in nearby areas. After the fireworks on the 4th of July, thousands of cars are leaving the area at the same time so expect to wait in traffic a long amount of time, and please be patient as you wait for your turn to leave the parking areas. Coon Rapids Police will direct traffic in the most efficient way possible, but please allow for this extra time in your schedule.
