Directions:

From the peninsula on U.S. Highway 101, take the Paul Ave. exit and make a left onto Paul Ave. Cross over the freeway and make a left on San Bruno Ave. Take the second right turn onto Mansell St. Those coming from the north / San Francisco on U.S. Highway 101, join us here after taking the Paul Ave. exit, it will dump you straight onto Mansell, do not turn. Drive about a half mile to turn right onto John F. Shelley Drive (the first turn, unlike yesterday!) Take this road past Cambridge St., then look for the large meadow on the right hand side, then park along the side of the road.

General directions are available from this website: McLarenPark.org.

Public Transit:

Transit information is available from this website: McLarenPark.org. It lists several SF Muni bus lines which can get you to the park. The closest BART station, Balboa Park, is about a mile and a half walk... or just get on the SF Muni 29 bus from Balboa Park BART. Get off at the second John F. Shelley Drive stop, and take this road past Cambridge St., then look for the large meadow on the right hand side.
