    Take I-75 North to I-575 North

    From I-575-N, take exit 16 and merge GA-140 W/GA-20 W toward GA-5 N.

    You are going to come to a stoplight (Williamson Brother BBQ is to the right of the light). This is GA-5 (Hwy 5). Take a Right on GA-5N.

    Travel a little less than 1/2 a mile, cross over the Etowah River bridge and take next left into Boling Park. (Big sign in the front of the park)

    (If you pass Cherokee High School, then you've gone just a tad bit too far. Boling Park is actually behind the school and runs along the Etowah River).

    Ok, so once you turn turn into Boling Park, continue until you come to the back of the park. You'll pass a lot of soccer fields and watch out for those speed bumps!!

    Park in the very back of the park. There's a ton of of parking back there. We'll be meeting in the Pavillion to which is on the right once you get back there. The park does have restrooms.
