Finding Address Numbers

The intersection of Wooster and Main Streets marks the boundaries of East/West and North/South Street designations.  The odd and even street numbers change sides of the street at this intersection as well.

We work closely with the City of Bowling Green to provide convenient, affordable parking for customers, employees, owners and residents in the core of the Special Improvement District.
