Directions to our yurt:

In a car:

  • Turn into the main Alton Baker Park entrance on Country Club Road. Follow the park road past the parking lots, past the Dead End sign, and past the Cuthbert Amphitheater, and past the turn off for the Boat Ramp. The Park Host Residence, Learnscape, Yurt, and Water Wise Garden are on the right, immediately after the Community Gardens and before bollards close the road going further into the park. Park in the gravel lot by the Community Gardens.

On a bike or on foot:

  • From the South, cross the Frohnmayer Footbridge, go toward the stadium on the bike path, and turn left at the closed road before the dog park. The The Park Host Residence, Learnscape, Yurt, and Water Wise Garden are up the road just a short distance, on the left. You can lock your bike in our covered bike rack.
  • From the east or west, follow the riverside bike path to the Frohnmayer Footbridge. Then follow directions above.
  • From the north: Enter the park at the main entrance on Country Club Road. Then follow directions for cars above.
