Parking is available a block away in the North Garage, located at the southeast corner of Brainerd Avenue and Lake Streets. The structure provides FREE 4-HOUR customer parking on ground floor and upper levels. Street parking is often congested. There is also a small lot behind Timothy O’Toole’s. We recommend the following:

By car, truck or motorcycle: Park in the North Garage for easiest access, or check out the Libertyville parking garage map.

By train: Take the Milwaukee North Line to Libertyville (four minute walk to Timothy O’Toole’s)

By rideshare: It’s pretty easy to find an Uber or Lyft driver in the area, or use your favorite ride-share company.

Carpool: Ride on over with a few of your friends. One of them is sure to volunteer as the designated driver.
