Parking – Drop off and pick up only
Please use the horseshoe-shaped drive, on the same side as Riverside, but a block closer to the BU Bridge. Don’t use Riverside’s parking lot. At pick up time, consider choosing a meeting spot on Comm Ave, which is a 10 minute walk for the athletes. It will save the driver much more time than it will take for the athlete to walk over the BU Bridge.
Paid parking is usually available on the left and up the hill at the UMass Medical Center. In 2008 parking fee was about $4 for the whole day. On street parking risks getting a parking ticket. For some regattas spectators are charged admission to enter the gates.
