LANSING, Ill. (June 3, 2019) – Though Fox Pointe Director Tony Troncozo did not provide an estimated capacity that the Fox Pointe venue can accommodate for shows and events, Village Communications Director Ken Reynolds calculates that 2,500 people could stand in the lawn and pavilion area. Because the venue is nestled in an area that is both residential and commercial, ensuring adequate parking for that many people has been a priority throughout the development of the project.
A combination of parking lots and on-street parking is available within the approximately two-mile circumference around Fox Pointe. Guests are encouraged to use all municipal parking lots as well as any open spots on Ridge Road. Parking on side streets is allowed, but patrons are reminded to obey all posted signage for legal parking and to be respectful of private property.
The Village released a map showing nearly 900 parking spaces currently available, with another 100 to be added this summer. The map is designed to make these pockets of parking easy to find by out-of-town guests as well as Lansing residents.
As indicated more clearly on the above image, Fox Pointe parking is available in the following locations:
A Municipal Center (87 spaces)
B History Plaza (16 spaces)
C Roy St North (65 spaces)
D Clock Tower Plaza (73 spaces)
E Post Office (126 spaces)
F Firefighters Memorial (23 spaces)
G Lake St North (44 spaces)
H Lake St South (20 spaces)
I William St (53 spaces)
J Ridge Rd / Roy St (12 spaces)
K Roy St / Ada St (87 spaces)
L American Legion (94 spaces)
M Sherman St (45 spaces)
