Parking at Lyndon Recreation

UpdatedWednesday May 4, 2016 byBilly Glasscock.

Lyndon Recreation Families,

For as long as the program has been around, the parking situation has always been less than ideal.  There are just not enough spaces to go around.  Over the past two nights, there have been many parking and traffic flow related issues.  Some of the parking issues can be attributed to an increased number new families to Lyndon Recreation and to extended family and other additional spectators coming to watch the first few games of the season.  In order to make sure anyone and everyone can come to the games and have the best possible experience, there are a few  things that need to be pointed out.

-With the exception or the entrances, most of the roadway in the parking lot is one way.  The correct traffic flow is shown with red arrows in the attached picture.  Most nights, there end up being cars parked along both sides of the roadway and there is no where near enough room for two way traffic.
-Although faint, the parking lots are striped.  Please be mindful of the parking spaces and avoid double parking and blocking other cars in.

The owners of the office buildings off of Ormsby Station Lane have graciously allowed us to use their parking lots on game days.  These lots provide close and easy access to fields 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.  This parking lot is also just as close to fields 2 and 3 as the Whipps Mill Rd parking lot, all you have to do is cut behind field 4.  All the owners of these buildings ask is that we keep spots open for the tenants that have extended weekday and weekend hours.  Most of those spots are adjacent to their buildings and are designated in the attached picture in yellow.

This is also a good time for a couple of other reminders:
-Please remember to lock your vehicles and don't leave purses, wallets, electronics, and other valuables inside.  If you must leave them in your vehicle place them in the trunk or remove them from plain sight.  Public park parking lots in the area have been known to be a target for break ins, even in broad daylight.
-Pets are not allowed in the park during games, even when on a leash. For the safety and enjoyment of all, we must abide by this policy, no matter how young, small, cute, and cuddly the pet may be.
