The centennial is coming! The centennial is coming!
OK, now that our excitement is expressed, let’s talk logistics. With all the festivities on Sunday, Oct. 19, you’ll probably want to know where to park. SMU is sponsoring a free shuttle for event attendees. Feel free to park at the following locations:
- Daniel Garage at the northeast corner of Hillcrest Avenue and Daniel Avenue
- Dallas Hall parking lot south of Athens Avenue
- Airline Garage at the southeast corner of Daniel Avenue and Airline Road
- University Parking Centers, at the southeast corner of University Boulevard and Airline Road, and the northeast corner of Airline Road and McFarlin Boulevard. (Shuttle will pick-up/drop-off at the corner of University Boulevard and Durham Street)
The shuttles will run every 10 minutes between 1:30 – 5:30 p.m., dropping you off at Westchester Drive and Grassmere Lane.
There will also be free parking in the HPHS garage and in the spaces along Lovers Lane next to the Scotland Yard baseball field, but don’t expect those to last long. Limited handicap spaces will be available along Westchester Drive, next to the Multi-Purpose Activity Center.
But whatever you do, don’t park on Grassmere Lane between Westchester Drive and Douglas Avenue. This area will be closed for the block party. Traffic will also be blocked northbound on Westchester Drive past Druid Lane.
