I am often asked by buyers who are new to Winnetka about parking, particularly for commuters. The Metra North Line runs right through the eastern side of Winnetka and the village has three stations: Indian Hill (at Winnetka and Green Bay,) Winnetka (at Elm and Green Bay,) and Hubbard Woods (at Gage and Green Bay.)
All three of these stops are easily walkable for many people, but if your location is just too far, then driving and parking is the best option. First, you'll need to go to Village Hall at 510 Green Bay Road to purchase parking stickers for ZONE C which is for commuters and residents who live in apartments without parking.
There is ample Zone C parking near all three stations in Winnetka, put it's first come, first serve. The cost is $100 for 6 months and they are sold to run from January to June, and July through December. The price will be prorated if you move here in the middle of those dates.
There are two additional parking zones in Winnetka: ZONE A and ZONE B. ZONE A is strictly for village employees who work here, such as myself who parks in an adjacent lot to my office. ZONE B is strictly for postal employees.
