Parking at Merriweather Post Pavilion for CHS Graduation

Lot 7 is the location for Centennial families and guest to park on for the day of graduation. Map included.  Note that Lot 1 is always reserved for Elected Officials and ADA with an additional 33 ADA spaces as noted.   Teachers and the Administration park by the white house up the winding driveway across from Toby’s Dinner Theatre for each graduation as in the past.

Parking is limited - carpooling is best.
Expect to walk. All of the parking (including ADA) is located some distance from the seating.  For guests with mobility issues, the use of the drop-off area is encouraged. Also, note “drop off” area on Merriweather Drive (called Merriweather Way on this map).
Plan for the unexpected.  Drive towards the specified lot(s), however, vehicles may be redirected by parking staff as lots fill.
