Travel to MetroSquash Academic & Squash Center

The MetroSquash Center is located in a neighborhood in transition and it is important to be aware of your surroundings. We recommend utilizing the parking garage listed below. If you do utilize street parking, we recommend it be adjacent to the MetroSquash Center or East of Cottage Grove Ave. Please do not leave valuables visible in your car wherever you are parked. While the Green Line stop at 63rd and Cottage Grove is only two blocks from the site, the Chicago Police Department does not recommend it as a transportation option. If you do take the Greenline, we recommend you travel in groups and avoid having your phone or earbuds visible.

Woodlawn is a wonderful and historic neighborhood where MetroSquash continues to build strong partnerships with neighbors, families, and community organizations. However, it is very important that visitors be aware of their surroundings at all times.
