Parking at the LDS Conference Center’s underground lot is not available during General Conference. However, it is available in four designated downtown lots near the center, according to the church’s website.

Attendees should plan for extra time to find parking and arrive well in advance to walk to the center, which is located at 60 W. North Temple in Salt Lake City.

The four available lots are:

  • The Parking Place — 200 W. South Temple
  • Triad Center — 400 West and North Temple
  • Eagle Gate Terrace — Near 200 East and South Temple
  • Regent Street — 100 South and Regent Street

Disability parking is available in an above-ground lot on W. Temple Street, which is to the west of the center. To enter the lot, enter West Temple from 200 North and drive south. The lot fills quickly, and parking is not guaranteed.

General Conference attendees are also encouraged to use UTA Trax and bus systems whenever possible to help ease congestion in downtown Salt Lake. Information on routes for both systems can be found at www.rideuta.com.
