EISENHOWER PARKING LOTS WILL FILL UP FAST ON MARATHON SUNDAY
Best parking lots inside Eisenhower Park are Fields 6, 6a & 2. Please note all these lots are located inside the park off of Park Blvd. which CLOSES at the Hempstead Turnpike entrance at 6 am. The Merrick Ave./Stewart Ave. entrance will close at 6:30 am.
The challenge is if entering Park Blvd. at the Merrick Ave./Stewart Ave. entrance, you must come from North of Stewart Ave. (example Old County Road), as Merrick Ave,. & Hempstead Turnpike will start to experience closings as we need to set up all the traffic barrels, cones, and barricades for the race.
HERE IS A TIP ON HOW BEST TO AVOID CHALLENGES: ARRIVE BEFORE 6 AM!
At 6:30 am, we will need to close Park Blvd. so we can set up the start lines and allow athletes to warm up on the road, etc. If you arrive late, you will need to park outside of Eisenhower Park and find your own way into the park.
