Parking: Parking is street parking or garage. There are a lot of meters nearby. The nearest garage is the Technology Square Garage, however the garages at 1 Broadway, 358 Kendall St, and 1 Memorial Dr (under the Microsoft NERD building) have much better rates after 5pm. (Please do not park in Draper employee parking.)
