NOTE: When leaving the park, it's difficult to make a left turn because of heavy westbound traffic. A good alternative is to turn right from Terry onto Valley. Turn right (northbound) at the intersection at Westlake Avenue; then immediately make a hard turn left (southbound) onto 9th Avenue. 9th Avenue will take you to signs directing you to I-5 to the east or Aurora Avenue to the west.
