Union station is right across the street from the Westin Hotel, Crown Center, World War 1 Memorial, and the Sheraton Hotel. There are several good restaurants inside, such as PierPonts Steakhouse, and some shops. Makes for a nice stop on a walk around downtown.

Yes, free parking is in BACK of the Union Station across the tracks. I think Pierpont's is in the same block as Grunauer Restaurant.
