There are several parking garages within walking distance:
The nearest are probably Parson's parking structure and the adjacent lot on the corner of Union and Pasadena Ave. On-street parking is metered, but only until 8pm. That's the least expensive parking option, but availability is limited. For rail users, the nearest Goldline Metro stop is Memorial Park, which is a few blocks east of the Idealab offices and is a great option for those coming from LA.
