  • Do you have accessibility needs but don't need ADA parking? There will be a designated drop off area at the front door.
  • If you don't mind walking and would like to visit the square after the ceremony without having to move your car, you can park in the Rec Center Parking Deck located off of Church Street.
  • Use the map to get walking directions from any place in town.
  • Parking will NOT be allowed along Morrison Moore Parkway.
  • Dahlonega is a very hilly campus. Please consider this and allow for extra walking time if needed.
