Traffic Advisory: Concert At Botanical Gardens

September 20, 2012

The Department of Parks said that due to the final preparations for the John Lennon Tribute Concert in the Botanical Gardens on Friday [Sept 21]  sections of the grounds will have restricted access.

Parking lots will be closed off to the general public from 8pm Thursday through Friday in order for staff and promoters to complete the final preparations for the evening concert. Alternative parking will be provided during the day on Friday.

A spokesperson said: “During the concert, staff from the Department of Parks will be on duty managing the traffic flow and parking vehicles, as well as providing information and direction to concert patrons. In order for patrons to have a smooth entry and exit to and from Botanical Gardens and to the concert, patrons are asked to follow the directions of the staff on duty.

“For concert patrons the following information will help with the flow of vehicles with respect to parking:

  • General admission for vehicles will be primarily through the South Shore gate below Camden House with designated parking on the lawn.
  • VIP Parking with the designated pass will be through the South Shore gate across from the Peace Lutheran Church.
  • Cycle parking with be off of the Berry Hill Road entrance, by the Kitchen Garden parking lot, which is near to Masterworks.
  • Taxi Drop off will be just inside the Berry Hill Road entrance.
  • Designated invited guests will enter through the Berry Hill Road entrance and directed to the designated parking areas.
  • Patrons are requested not to park their vehicles on the roadways as this will obstruct traffic flow.
  • The Point Finger Road entrance will have restricted vehicular traffic flow in a southerly direction only during the concert. .

The Department of Parks apologize for any inconvenience that the restricted access causes, asks for the cooperation of the general public in this matter, and the Minister of Public Works Michael Weeks wished concert patrons a safe and enjoyable night at concert.
