Starting this evening, all groups that usually swim at Merfish will move to the indoor TSU pool at their normal times.
GARAGE and NATATORIUM
Parking Garage address: 3001 Blodgett, Houston, TX 77004
The parking garage is located at the NE corner of Ennis and Blodgett on the west side of the TSU campus.
DRIVING DIRECTIONS Approaching from UH:
* * * * *
Travel west on Elgin,
take a left on Ennis (you've gone several streets too far if at Dowling St.), left on Blodgett (the parking garage is immediately on your left),
U-turn still on Blodgett, and
turn right into the parking garage.
Approaching from 288
If traveling away from downtown southbound on 288, exit Southmore, make a U- turn over the freeway, and stay on the feeder road. Turn right onto Blodgett, pass through the signal light at Ennis (the parking garage is immediately on your left), U-turn and turn right into the parking garage.
Approaching traveling north on
Exit Southmore but travel through the Southmore signal light and stay on the northbound feeder road. Turn right onto Blodgett, pass through the signal light at Ennis (the parking garage is immediately on your left), U-turn and turn right into the parking garage.
WALKING DIRECTIONS FROM GARAGE TO
I normally park on the lower level as close to the entrance as possible. Walk out the north side of the parking garage (opposite side of entrance - notice the pay kiosk on your left), turn right and walk about 100-meters. The first building on your left just past the hike-n-bike trail is the Natatorium. There is a small pedestrian ramp leading to double glass doors that lead directly onto the pool deck.
With your parking stub, walk back to the parking garage - visit the pay-station kiosk and pay your parking - approximately $2. Sometimes the "cash" feature doesn't work, so bring a credit card. Return to your car, drive to the exit, and the gate arm will swing open after depositing your paid parking stub.
