New 2024 Parking Regulations

In an effort to alleviate neighborhood traffic and maintain the Dole grounds, we have implemented new 2024 parking regulations. FREE PARKING is available at the Triangle Lot and at South Elementary School and Lundahl Middle School Parking Lots. Handicap parking is onsite and always FREE.

Parking at the Dole will now be VIP PARKING at a cost of $5 per car. 


NOTE: To avoid construction on Dole Ave., use McHenry Ave.

TO TRIANGLE LOT PARKING: Traveling westbound on Route 14 / Northwest Highway, turn left on McHenry Ave. Take the 2nd right onto Lake St. then veer to the 1st left onto Lake Ave. Continue to the lakefront, then turn left onto Lake Ave. and then the immediate 1st left onto Country Club Rd. The Triangle Lot will be immediately on the right.

TO SOUTH ELEMENTARY & LUNDAHL MIDDLE SCHOOL PARKING: Traveling westbound on Route 14 / Northwest Highway, turn left on McHenry Ave. About 1/2 mile, turn right onto Brook Dr. then right on Nash Rd.
