Directions: (Cars and Trucks/Trailers) From Highway 90/94 (Kennedy Expressway): Exit at Fullerton Ave. and drive east approximately 2.5 miles. Turn right from Fullerton onto Cannon Drive (the first right after the Lincoln Park Conservatory, a large glass structure on the right).

From Lake Shore Drive (CARS ONLY!): Exit at Fullerton Ave., drive west over the bridge and take your first left into the Zoo parking lot.  CARS ONLY!!!

Parking: The Lincoln Park Lagoon parking lot is a private concession run on behalf of the Lincoln Park Zoo. The parking fee for automobiles and trucks is approximately $24.00 for 5-24 hours, includes NO in-and-out privileges. A parking fee may be charged for trailers in addition to this fee.

We urge you to come to the park early in the day. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ARRIVE AT THE PARK BY CAR OR TRAILER AFTER 10AM. The parking concessionaire will close the entrance to the park when all the spaces are full, which often happens by 10am on the weekend. The Boat Club cannot control the timing of the closure. Closure cuts off all vehicle access to the boathouse and regatta staging area. We want everyone to drop off their equipment and race their events in a relaxed and unhurried manner. Please leave plenty of time to negotiate traffic and arrive early.
