PARKING INFORMATION *FOR WESTMONT YARD* BOYS TOURNEY

 

  • 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 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
  • You will be towed if you park on any side-streets
  • You will be towed if you are not parked in an actual parking space
  • 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.
  • - Car-pooling is strongly recommended
