Parking for the River City Festival

A few items related to parking at Hoglund Ballpark and Free State. I ask you to please share this with your patrons and team drivers:


Hoglund Ballpark:

  • The public may park in the fenced off, gravel lot, directly west of the ballpark. School vans may also park in that location. The remaining lots around the ballpark are not for public parking
  • Prior to 5 pm on Thursday and Friday, buses must drop teams off at the ballpark and then proceed to the Lied Center parking lot. Buses are not allowed to remain at the stadium

Directions from the ballpark to the Lied Center: Proceed south on Naismith Drive to 19th Street. Turn right (west) on 19th Street to the light at Iowa. Proceed straight through the light onto west campus. Take the first right (north) and proceed to the Lied Center entrance. It is strongly suggested that you have the phone number of your driver and contact that person as soon as your game is completed so that you may be picked up.

  • The parking lot beyond the scoreboard in right field is for dormitory parking. Cars illegally parked there are subject to ticketing and tow
  • After 5 pm on Thursday and Friday, and all day Saturday, parking around the stadium is open to the public, with the exception of the dormitory lot beyond the right field scoreboard


Free State High School:

  • Cars, vans and buses are asked to NOT park at the Lawrence Indoor Aquatic Center, just north of Free State High School. Though a longer walk, there is plenty of overflow parking in the student lot, north and east of the school.

Lawrence High School:

          No Special Instructions.
