Travel Information:

  • Guests who wish to take the Metro to the event should exit at the Navy Yard-Ballpark metro station, and follow the signs for the stadium exit. 
  • For guests who will require parking, please use Garage C for parking. Garage C is located at the corner of N Street SE and First Street SE with the vehicle entrance on First Street SE. When entering the garage, guests will need to let the parking attendant know that they are there for the California State Society Picnic. Guests are encouraged to park near the elevator banks located on each level on the plaza side of the garage.  Once parked, take the elevators or stairs down to “PL” (Plaza) which is street level. From there, guests will follow the walkway which will feed them out directly next to Center Field Gates for entry. There will be directional signage at the entrance to Garage C to assist in finding the Center Field Gates.  
  • Upon reaching Center Field Gate, guests will be screened by security for entry. Once screening is complete, guests will walk directly into Center Field Plaza for the event. Also, please be aware of the bag policy explained below.

Bag Policy:

  • Please note that any bag larger than a clutch must be clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC with the exception of diaper and medical bags.
