Parking at Kenilworth-Parkside Recreation Center (limited)
PARKING IS LIMITED AT KENILWORTH-PARKSIDE RECREATION CENTER. Due to rain our parking is extremely limited this year at Kenilworth Rec Center (map). This year we have employed the services of a professional parking company, however, we cannot guarantee that we will have enough parking for all spectators in these lots. Please be patient as we will park as many cars as we can and will manage ingress/egress of cars throughout day as efficiently as possible. Arrive early, be prepared to wait, and make yourself familiar with other parking options in case these lots becomes temporarily or permanently full. Handicap parking available in this lot; must show placard.

Parking is available near Chavez High School and the surrounding areas (see map for detail on where to park). Please park in the shaded areas of the map. There will be a shuttle that will run on a loop at the corner of Hayes + Kenilworth Terrace.
To access Chavez, please turn left onto Kenilworth Terrace from 295-S.
METRO & Overflow Parking — Minnesota Avenue (Orange Line)
This event is METRO accessible (orange line). Also for the most parking options, consider parking at Minnesota Avenue METRO. It has a multi-level parking garage ($4.60) as well as metered spots. The Minnesota Ave METRO is a .4 mile walk (approximately 10 minutes) to the entrance to Kenilworth Park and is a .7 mile walk (15 minutes) from the start/finish areas of the meet. Sorry, METRO does not allow us to provide shuttle service from the METRO station, however, you may take the U7 bus which runs on the :12 and :42 on the hour and drops off at the entrance to Kenilworth Park (Kenilworth Ave NE & N H Burroughs Ave).
We recommend that if you are unfamiliar with this area and are walking to/from this METRO that you do not walk alone and return to your vehicles before dark.
