How to Reverse Park in 3 Easy Steps
Reverse angle parking can seem intimidating at first, but after a few tries with these three simple steps, you'll be parking like a pro in no time. Weekend workshops are also planned in the near future for City of Topeka residents to practice their reverse angle parking, in anticipation of upcoming changes to 12th Street.
Reverse angle parking stalls, designed to improve safety for all roadway users, will be seen:
Between Kansas Avenue and Topeka Boulevard
In front of the multi-use building north of Holliday Park
Along two churches on the south side of 12th Street
