Taxi/Uber

Best drop off location for a Taxi, Uber or by a friend is the carpark located on the Princes Highway opposite May Street.

Parking

There are two Sydney Park parking lots. One located on Princes Highway opposite May Street and the other located on Sydney Park Road near the Mitchell road intersection. Bunnings Alexandria is also a short walk down Euston Road which has a large customer carpark for those who plan on shopping at Bunnings. There is also street parking located around this Alexandria area.
