Packing Plant Spur – Parking


18. Packers Practice Fields

The start of the Cora Vanderperren Trail and the Packing Plant Spur is just north of City Stadium. When East High School isn’t in session, there’s parking in front of City Stadium. There’s also street parking – sometimes with restrictions – at the east end of Cherry and St. Clair streets. There’s a surface lot with meters at the southwest corner of Main and Baird streets. The lot is across the street and less than a block from the start of the Packing Plant Spur.

When school isn’t in session, there’s a large lot at the end of Walnut St., just beyond the outfield wall of Joannes Stadium. When school is in session, there’s a lot off Kurtz Avenue closer to the entrance of the stadium. To get there, head south on Baird from East High, turn left at Crooks St. and left on Kurtz.
