Any of the side streets that say parking allowed. If you start closer to where the monuments begin you have a better chance at parking. There is a Kroger on Broad St you can park in the lot and walk x to the monuments. I would be careful on the weekdays b/c VCU is there and they patrol the lots for kids parking in the lots. The weekends are better. Parking in the city on the weekends is better anyhow b/c the rules are relaxed.

asked the concierge to recommend a tour. We hired a lady
historian by the name of Gayle Spence and had a lovely
day or touring and wonderful conversation.
