DIRECTIONS TO BLUEBIRD COMMONS

Enter Woodcrest Villa on Harrisburg Ave directly across from the Penn Medicine-Lancaster General Health Pavillion. Drive 70 yards until you reach a “T” intersection and a “Welcome” sign to Woodcrest Villa. Turn right and proceed for another 70 yards and make your first left. Go five yards and make the first right into the parking lot. Park here in a “Vistors” space, not a “Resident” space. The entrance to BlueBird Commons is on the left, at the end of the building at the bottom of the hill. Should this lot be filled, you may park in any space in the lot across the street from Bluebird Commons. If you have any questions after parking, you may inquire at the meeting if you are correctly parked.
