Directions by T
The "D" line Longwood stop is directly across the Riverway from the Winsor School. The "E" line Longwood stop is approximately 1/2 mile away on Longwood Avenue. The area is also served by the number 47 bus from Cambridge, as well as other bus lines.
Driving directions are available at the Google Maps link above.
Players may park in the Winsor School lot if necessary. Note that on nights of Red Sox home games it will be necessary to manually open and close the gates to the parking lot, so as to avoid having Red Sox game attendees park in the lot. Garage parking is available in the area as well. In general, parking is somewhat limited and MBTA access is very easy, making public transit perhaps preferable in this location.(Direction details)
