You will not be able to park at the Parliament parking lot, so you will need to find another place to park your car, or take public transportation.

Island staples like hitting a few rounds of golf and taking to the water are also widely available in the region. Travelers interested in showing their aptitude on the golf course, can do so at the nearest option, which is Rockley Golf Course. If playing a few rounds of golf doesn't excite you, consider going over to Carlisle Bay, one of the closest beaches to this landmark.
