Weeknight Parking at Legacy Fields at Minnetonka High School
For Minnetonka Girls Softball Association and visiting players, parents, fans and umpires
May and early June weeknights at Legacy Field are always very busy due to after-school athletic activities (Baseball, Softball, Track, Lacrosse and Tennis), and parking can be a challenge.
There are two parking areas near Legacy fields, the Lower parking lot directly adjacent to the fields and the large Upper parking lot near the baseball field entrance and High School West Entrance.
Parking in the Upper parking lot
Parents/Fans/Players are always encouraged to park in the Upper parking lot and walk down the steps to Legacy Field. There is almost always sufficient parking in the Upper lot for all activities.
Parking in the Lower parking lot
During May and early June (when school is still in session and there are after-school athletic practices/games at the stadium, lower baseball, Legacy and tennis courts), parking in the Lower parking lot is very tight. MHS after-school athletic practices/games typically begin between 3:00 pm and 5:30 pm.
MHS players are asked to park in the Upper parking lot. MHS team parents/fans typically will park in the lower lot for home games/matches that usually start by 5:30pm.
During MHS games/events (in particular lacrosse and track) at the stadium, the MHS Activities Department restricts access to the Lower parking lot usually from 4:45pm - 8:00pm. This is due to safety concerns with the road sharing vehicle traffic and pedestrians.
When there is a gate attendant at the entrance to the Lower parking lot, the following persons can approach and receive permission to drive down and park in the Lower parking lot. DRIVE SLOWLY AND WATCH CAREFULLY FOR PEDESTRIANS.
Head Coaches with equipment
Umpires for MGSA slowpitch and fastpitch games
Senior citizen fans
All other MGSA players and parents should park in the Upper parking lot and walk down to the field.
ALWAYS PARK LEGALLY or you’ll be at risk of ticket/tow.
