Use pedestrian overpass south of University Avenue to reach the ceremony. Click map above for details.
A limited number of parking spaces for disabled and senior attendees will be available. For reserved parking and a few unreserved senior/disabled spaces, drive into the park going west on Bancroft Way and turn right at Bolivar Dr. (where Bancroft ends, in the park). Disabled parking spots will be demarcated on your right: disabled spaces reserved online (blue on the above map) are past (north of) the entrance to the Plexxikon lot, and unreserved senior/disabled spaces (red on the above map) are before (south of) the entrance along the wrought-iron fence.
