3748 Minnehaha Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55406
NOTE ON ROAD CONSTRUCTION
The reconstruction of Minnehaha Avenue, from 35th to 38th Streets, began April 1. It will continue for at least 3 months. Both Tapestry parking lots ARE accessible from the alley. You can reach the parking lot next to our building by turning into the alley on 38th Street (take a left and then a quick right by the yellow building). You can reach the parking lot across the street by entering the alley off 37th Street, by the Rail Station. Our lot is near the end of the alley, with part of a black fence still blocking half of the back of it.
There is on-street parking on Minnehaha, south of 38th, on the streets to the east of Minnehaha, and on Snelling Avenue to the west. There is no parking on Dight.
Remember, Tapestry is easy to get to by mass transit. The 7 bus has been rerouted but it continues to pick up and drop off on the corner of Minnehaha and 38th Street. And the light rail is as accessible as usual.
Tapestry dancers may park:
- in the lot adjacent to the building (note: before 6 pm, only the portion closest to 38th Street is allowed)
- in the lot by Midwest WindowCo. (across the street)
- on the street (observe meters)
Remember: Don’t leave anything of value in your car (GPS, phone, purse, gym bag etc.) – or anything that looks like it may be valuable.

Nice Ride Bike Share:
There is a Nice Ride bike share docking/rental station at the 38th street light rail station. Nice Ride is a bike sharing program that runs from April to November. Pay at the docking/rental stations for a day pass or 30 day pass and then choose a green nice ride bike. Rates go up the longer you use the bike so it is advisable to dock at stations along the way to save. It’s a great way to get to Tapestry and warm up before the dance!
