Hotels & Dining


There are a variety of parking options for your visit to the Orlando Shakespeare Theater. During heavy event days in Loch Haven Park, parking may be a challenge. Don’t forget to view our calendar of Loch Haven Park events to make note of days when parking might be more difficult.

  • A limited number of free public parking spaces are available in the parking lot at the Rollins Street entrance (in front of the Lowndes Shakespeare Center).
  • Alternate parking may be found in the parking lot near the Princeton Street entrance
  • You may also find excellent parking options along Mills Avenue (Rt. 17/92).
  • There are also various paid parking garages within 5 minutes walking distance. Rates vary.

NOTE: We are located at 812 E. Rollins St., Orlando, FL 32803. Although we are proud partners with the University of Central Florida, the John and Rita Lowndes Shakespeare Center is not located on the UCF campus. Our Theater is located just north of Downtown Orlando in the Loch Haven Cultural Park.

I-4 Ultimate Improvement Project

  • Construction on I-4 may affect travel to the Lowndes Shakespeare Center.
  • Motorists on eastbound Interstate 4 (I-4) who wish to exit to Princeton Street (Exit 85) will be required to do so nearly 2 miles sooner. The new temporary configuration will shift Exit 85 on eastbound I-4 closer to Colonial Drive (State Road 50). For more information, view the I-4 Ultimate handout.
