Where to Park

Parking is extremely limited at the beach. We recommend either parking in the South Lot and walking over (30 minute fairly flat walk) or parking in the North Lot and shuttling down. There will be a van to transport folks from the North Parking Lot down to the beach.

*More details to come on whether the City will also be able to provide a shuttle or not from one of the farther parking lots.*
