LFHS Aquatic Center Parking Access:

  • East (back) parking lot (North End) of the school campus and ONLY in designated area
  • Front Entrance Driveway North end, Diagonal Parking Spaces ONLY
  • West parking lot (brick pavers) in front of the school's athletic wing

On school days ONLY the North End of the East (back) Parking Lot or the diagonal parking spaces on the front drive are available for Aquatic Center parking. After 3:20 pm on school days, Saturdays, Sundays and school holidays--including the summer months--the East and West lots are available.

To access the lots from McKinley Road - enter the school property from McKinley Road at the south end of the horseshoe drive (one way traffic)

  • To get to the East (back) Parking Lot - travel 1/3 of the way round the horseshoe drive and turn slightly to the right once you approach the building. Once past the building on the south drive, turn left at the stop sign and go to the farthest bank of spots that run along Spruce Ave. Handicap spaces are clearly marked in this lot just outside the Metcalf Foyer entrance. Enter the building through the northern-most door just at the top of the handicap access ramp. Signage will direct you to the locker rooms/pool.
  • To get to the West Parking Lot (brick pavers) on the west (front) side of the building - keep to the left when reaching the first curve in the horseshoe and go 2/3 of the way round the drive and you will see the diagonal parking spaces. Go a little further 3/4 of the way round the drive and turn right into the paver parking lot. You can park in any open space but must have proper ID to use the handicap spaces. The handicap spaces (paver lot) face the building just outside the south end of the pool portico. Enter the building and once inside, walk past the ramp and tall staircase on or left. You will see a longer ramp and a short staircase on your right--use either to gain access to the pool hallway and the appropriate locker rooms or the pool office.
