Directions to Saratoga

Posted Thursday, May 08, 2014 by Donna Polidoro
 Hi Everyone! 

The races this weekend will be held at Lee's Park. The address for your GPS is: 543 Union Avenue, Saratoga Springs, NY 12666. 

The traffic getting into the race venue is VERY heavy so please plan your trip accordingly. Below is an excerpt from the Saratoga Rowing site - please see the site for additional details on the weekend.  http://www.saratogarowing.com/states-announcements/ 

[9] Parking (land):  Lee's Park will be charging for parking all three days.  They charge $15 for Saturday & Sunday for sure.  Not sure aboutFriday.  Please don't hassle the guys doing the parking, it certainly doesn't go to them.  Some warnings for your parents:  (a) the County Sheriff has told me he will NOT be as lenient with people parking on the State Route 9P.  People who park along the major road will be ticketed if even one inch of tire is touching the white line.  The City Police on the other side of the Bridge will enforce a no-parking-along-the-road rule.  This was quite a safety hazard the past two weeks.  Parking tickets run $80-$130 I'm told.  That is surely more than $15.  (b)  Please tell your parents to park where directed, and NOT try to find all the sneaky ways down to the water.  There will be a tow truck awaiting to remove people's cars.  We don't have time to chase people around.
