Stern Grove Driving Directions

Stern Grove is located at the corner of 19th Ave and Sloat.

There are two parking lots at Stern Grove that you may use.

1.  The first parking lot is an IMMEDIATE Right on 19th Ave at the corner of Sloat.  There is a sign that says Stern Grove and the turn is right there.  Park in the lot and walk across the concert meadow to the west meadow.

Look for our red flag and you will find us. This parking lot is a little farther away (you would still not need a stroller) but offers easy access to the bathrooms and is typically dog free. 

2.  The second lot is a little further down Sloat.  Take Sloat and turn right on Vale.  Go straight through the gates and head down to the parking lot.  Park on the right side of the parking lot and look for our red flag. 

This lot is a little closer to our location, but there is an off leash dog area on the opposite side of the parking lot, so there can be dogs off leash in the parking area
