Parking and seating areas are available for spectators with disabilities and/or mobility issues.
Up-front parking and a special seating area next to the fence with a close-up view of the action, is available for our spectators with disabilities and/or mobility issues. This parking is behind both bleachers; and the seating reserved for our guests with disabilities/mobility issues is located in front of the west bleachers (closest to Carbondale). BRING your own chairs as the seating area does not have chairs but is simply a reserved area for spectators with disabilities/mobility issues and their guests. Be sure and let the parking staff know you are headed to handicap parking so they are not trying to direct you to the main parking lots instead.
