MSI Parking

Please follow these parking guidelines and review the attached photo.

  • Please do not block the drive to the MSI Soccer building.
  • Please do not park along the fence in the small MSI lot facing the fields and the MSI Soccer Building.
  • The asphalt parking lot is the property of the Elks Lodge and not MSI. Please be aware they also have customers and that is their parking lot. You are at risk of being towed, at your own expense, when parking on the asphalt.
  • When parking in the smaller lot, please leave room for cars to pull around. First, in front along the fence. Secondly, where the asphalt and gravel meet and continues to the drive behind the Elks.
Walking to the fields may be easier for some than others. We know that parking in the larger lot is not always the most convenient, but it is MSI parking, and we ask that you utilize that lot as much as possible.
