We park at AJ's. AJ's is the closest parking lot to the 5/3 Ball Park entrance off of West River Drive.

From the east off I-196 or I-96: go to 131N and exit at West River Drive. Drive straight through the stoplight into the Ball Park area. AJ's is a go-cart race track on your left. Park just beyond that on your left.

From the North - 131S to West River Drive, turn left at stoplight and then right at the next light under the overpass and park at AJ's.
