I-5 North from Portland:

As you enter the Tacoma area take Exit 133 and continue straight ahead in the right lane following the signs to I-705 North. Follow the City Center signs and take the ramp to Schuster Parkway. Once you are on the ramp stay in the left lane and take the Schuster Parkway "only" ramp. Turn right at the first light onto South 4th Street (the park will be in front of you).  

Do not enter the park here: Go to the end of the first warehouse building to drop off paddlers/gear because building has a one way road inside of it. Go past the park entrance to the south end of the building to enter. This is where you may drive through the building to drop off paddlers and gear.

Parking is $10 in the Republic Parking lot adjacent to the Rock the Dock Restaurant.

If there is no available parking here continue south on Dock Street until it ends at East D Street. Turn right onto East D Street. Turn left onto East 25th Street - (you will see the construction dead end) - the Tacoma Dome Station parking is located on your left just before East G Street where the race shuttle is based.
