*GPS Warning* GPS does not work very well near the dam and some device maps have our address on the wrong side of the dam. We highly advise against relying on GPS so the following directions will be very helpful. This event is located in Cherry Creek State Park in Greenwood Village at 4800 S Dayton St. If you come in through the West entrance (by Cherry Creek High School) you can check in with the front gate and let them know you’re part of an event with Community Sailing. Then follow W. Lake View Rd and take your first left onto Marina Access Rd. You will pass all of the parking lots on your right before you arrive at the Lake House. Park in front of the Lake House and enter through the main doors in the front of the building.
