PARKING INFORMATION

 

* Please Note: Parking at the Westmont Yard Facility has become quite a challenge with the city due to how large the event has become and the reality of large snow piles. We strongly encourage anyone who can Car-Pool to do-so.

We must stress a couple of key 'No Parking Zones' on the map below in red. You will be towed if you park in front of the Day-Care Building directly West of the Westmont Yard Main Facility Building, or if you park on any side-streets / streets that do not have designated Parking Spaces.

There is a Parking Lot South of Westmont Yard that requires a short walk to get to the facility. This is the Parking Lot we encourage people to use should there be no spaces available in the Westmont Yard Parking Lot.
