The assisted living building where we will perform is the building on your right or on the North Side of the site. Turn right for the preferred parking and front entrance, alternately you can conveniently park anywhere on the lot by either building. The building to the south is the retirement home.
Overflow parking, if unexpectedly necessary, would be at the church directly across Kennedy Road.

9) Wednesday, November 7, 2018: Christie Gardens Apartments and Care, 600 Melita Crescent, (east side of the complex is on Christie Street) Toronto, Ontario, M6G 3Z4. Afternoon entertainment.
Time: 2:00 pm, one set for one hour.
Parking: Park on the opposite side (east side) of Christie; take the south driveway (there are two parallel driveways) adjacent to the sunflowers painted on the retaining wall. The southern driveway leads to the huge Visitor Parking lot on the east side of Christie St. opposite the south end of the complex. For people with just their banjo, music and stand, they can park their car first, cross Christie St. and then enter at the security door at the bottom of the ramp.
Directions: If you need driving directions, talk to Glen. Once you get to Christie Gardens this is how Glen suggests to gain entrance to the auditorium: you enter the ramp at the north-east part of the complex from Christie St. right near Lambertlodge Ave. I do believe it is the basement floor as well. The ramp begins just a few feet south of Lamberlodge. Take the ramp to the bottom of it and you'll see doors on your right. That's the security guard location who should be aware of who we are when we arrive. This is the best entrance for taking equipment in because you're then on the right level for the auditorium where we perform. It's a big ziggy-zaggy to find the auditorium but the security guard can always direct you. As well, after you drop off your equipment inside the door, you can take the ramp back up and it re-enters Christie St. Immediately across the street to your left is where the sunflowers are on the wall. Enter the south driveway (there's two there) and on your right is the visitor parking. Warning: If you try to enter at the main entrance on the west side of the complex, it's on the second (and wrong) floor. Then you're into elevators which is not convenient at all. Also, parking at the main entrance for visitors is extremely limited. [See their website].
