Note also that although the library and just over half the parking lot are now closed off by fencing during the construction, the outer ring of the parking lot is
still open for park users. The far end of the outer ring, which is nearest the park, is about 15 feet from the walkway down to our usual fight practice site in the park.
Fighters may also park along the edge of the park across from the Peach Tree Garden Apartments. Please take care to leave a few empty spaces for the residents on that
side of the Garden Apartments parking area.
