ADA Access

The Jacksonville Center for Performing Arts is committed to meeting or exceeding all structural and service requirements as stipulated by the Americans with Disabilities Act. Listed below are tips for access and egress, as well as assistance during your visit with us.

Accessible Seating/Tickets

Wheelchair accessible seats are available in all price levels. One companion ticket may be purchased with each wheelchair accessible ticket. Please indicate when buying tickets if you require accessible seating. You may purchase handicapped-accessible seating in person at the Box Office during normal business hours or by calling Ticketmaster at 1 (800) 745-3000.

Accessible Drop-off

Guests may drive into the front circular driveway on Water Street to allow passengers to unload before parking. While the vehicle is being parked, the guest may wait at the Security desk in the right side of the lobby for their party.

Should a patron not have their own chair, JCPA Security will provide one and escort the patron via elevator to their seat. At such time, the chair must be returned by an usher to the Security desk. At the close of the event, someone in your party may return to Security to request a chair for patron transport.

Accessible Parking

A limited number of accessible parking spaces are available in the parking lot immediately west of the building. Entrance to the lot is available via Pearl Street. Additional metered accessible spaces are available on Hogan Street and Pearl Street. Valet parking is available for a fee at the Omni Hotel directly across from the Times-Union Center entrance.

Service Animals

Trained service animals are permitted to assist guests inside the Center. If special accommodations are required for your service animal, please notify us at the time of ticket purchase. All other animals are prohibited.
