Swim Meet Parking Courtesy

Respect the ‘hood and the Police

Swim meets will fill the Canterbury Recreation parking lot quickly. Please respect all painted handicapped markers and temporary parking markers for visiting coaches and support staff.

Overflow parking is available along Covent and Walbrook Roads. Our neighbors are kind enough to tolerate the extra traffic, but we ask that you obey following rules in the neighborhood:

  1. Please park on one side of the street only (follow “no parking” signs)
  2. Respect street side lawns and plants
  3. Do not block driveways, hydrants or walkways. If you think you might be encroaching on a driveway, you probably are and should respectfully consider another parking spot.
  4. Please pick up trash, and if you bring pets, please clean up after them.

Park at your own risk. Canterbury Recreation Association is not responsible for damage or theft while parked in the neighborhoods near the club.

We respectfully ask that you do not park along Pump Road. While you may witness this behavior, you do so at your own risk of being blocked in or ticketed by Henrico County Police, both on- and off-duty.
