PARKING AND DIRECTIONS

Free parking is available at the East Beach Lot.  We have reserved a portion and it is first come, first served with access beginning at 8:45AM.  There is additional free parallel parking alongside the entirety of Mason Street.  Do no park at the Sports Basement lot.  For paid parking options (max typically of $8/day), consider using ParkMe.  It is a great resource and most of the sites are within 5-10 minute walk of the East Beach picnic area.

If you are using GPS, use 1199 East Beach, San Francisco, CA 94129.  Give yourself extra time in the morning and do not reply solely on GPS.
