Multimodal Connectivty Question/Problem

In my ArcMap, I have 3 line feature classes(Road, Sidewalk, Parking(which is used to incorporate walking/driving)) to demonstrate a transportation network.

My problem is that I am trying to make it so that in order to enter the road network they have to enter a point in the middle of the parking lot(represents a parking space) that is connected to the parking line feature class then "drive" to a connection point between the parking feature class and road line feature class. The issue I'm having is that I also have connection points to enter the parking feature class from the sidewalk, so when I route it just goes from the sidewalk/parking connection to the parking/road connection rather then going to sidewalk/parking, parking/parking spot, parking spot/parking, parking/road.

Is there anyway that I can have it so that in order to route using the road network, it is required for the route to go to the parking space from the sidewalk then to the road?

Any help would be appreciated!
