Many different club rides begin at this venue: Wednesday evening training rides; many Saturday morning training rides; Saturday instructional rides; and some day touring rides. Usually members are asked to park in the dirt lot, however this may vary according to the demands of other events being held at the park. The park is heavily used and parking can often be at a premium. Restrooms and/or a portable toilet are usually (during the summer season) available in the main area of the Dorset Recreation Area.

Parking is in the gravel parking lot, 100 meters east of the intersection of Dorset and Swift Streets. See red pointer on map.DO NOT park at the C. Douglas Cairns Recreation Arena.
