Car/Van

There are two options available for parking cars and vans for athletic events:

  1. Park in the DC Lot (recommended) - Parking is available in the DC Lot between the Keohane Sports Center and the Outdoor Tennis Courts. This is the best option for all events at the athletic fields, including: field hockey, lacrosse, soccer, softball and tennis. Enter through the 300 Central Street entrance, following the sign for Athletic Fields and continue straight, then make a right into the parking lot.
  2. Park in the Davis Parking Facility - Parking is also available at the Davis Parking Facility, farther away from most of the fields where competitions take place. Parking may be restricted in this area if the gate at the entrance is down. To park at the Davis Parking Facility, make a left turn at the stoplight at the intersection of Central Street and College Road. From there, take the first right. Make another right into the Davis Parking Facility. 

PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN ANY RESERVED OR HANDICAPPED SPACES OR IN FIRE LANES.
