Where Do I Park?

Plymouth offers ample parking directly east of the church in our two-story parking ramp. With entrances from Ingersoll Avenue, 40th Street or 42nd Street, it’s easy access from just about any direction. A limited amount of short-term parking often is available in the circle drive off 42nd Street. During weekday mornings, 8:30 a.m.-noon, half of those spots are reserved for Plymouth Grounds Coffee Shop patrons.

Plymouth Grounds Coffee Shop

Plymouth Grounds Coffee Shop, staffed by student baristas with intellectual or learning challenges from the Des Moines Schools and Plymouth volunteers, is located in the southwest corner of Plymouth Church and reserved parking spots are available during business hours (8:30-11:30 a.m., Monday-Friday and 4-6 p.m. Wednesdays) in the circle drive. Drop in, grab a beverage, and be on your way. (It’s almost as good as drive-through!)
