The station is located in the Midtown District of Santa Monica, in the center of Colorado Avenue west of 17th Street, adjacent to Memorial Park: the City of Santa Monica refers to this station area as the "Memorial Park Neighborhood Transit Village".[3] It is three blocks from Santa Monica College.

The east end of the station is at 17th Street and the west end of the station is mid-block between 15th and 16th Streets with entrances at either end. Parking and an off-street bus stop is located just south of Colorado between 16th and 17th Streets.[4]

History[edit]

Originally located south of Colorado on a private right-of-way, the line and following stations were moved to the median of Colorado boulevard per a request from the City of Santa Monica during the line's design phase.
