From South - I-985, take exit 22, go left at end of ramp, following US Highway 129 North for about 2 ½ miles (Highway 129 will become Historic Green Street). When you come to the split of Highway 129 & Highway 60, follow Highway 129 and turn right onto Glenwood Drive right past the Gainesville Civic Center. City Park is at the bottom of the hill where you turn left into the drive of City Park. If you follow the road on around past the tennis courts, Candler Fields will be on your right as you go past the tennis courts.
