It is between Chestnut and Gay streets in downtown West Chester, PA.
When you enter the main door to the building, the Shambhala Center is immediately to your left. Our main door is the second door on the left (the first door enters into the shrine room).

Parking:

We do not have a dedicated parking lot, but there is lots of parking available downtown. This is the official downtown West Chester parking guide.

There are parking meters directly outside our building and on the surrounding streets. Metered/kiosk parking is enforced from 8am to 10pm Monday-Wednesday; 8am to 12am Thursday & Friday; 5pm to 12am Saturday; Free on Sunday. There is a 3-hour limit at the on-street meters downtown.

The many ways to pay at Parking Meters:

  • Quarters: 10-minutes for each quarter up to three hours.
  • Credit cards: $0.75 per half-hour up to three hours, no surcharge.
  • Pay-by-phone: 610-628-4255 (mobile with text ability)

There is free parking after 4:30 in the lot at the far western end of Gay street (across the intersection of New Street).  Also, usually the farther away you get from the center the more likely there is free street parking, but you have to make sure it is not zoned as residential.

This page outlines the parking garages and lots near us. Here is information on the two closest to our space:
