Parking at the Seymour Center is temporarily changing! The parking area directly in front of the Seymour Center will be renovated during June and July. However a new parking area that’s a ten-minute scenic walk to the Seymour Center will be open for your use.

During our parking lot renovation, there will be disabled parking nearby as well as a passenger drop off zone for members of your group who cannot walk far. We hope to see you this summer!
