Take a left into the parking lot behind the Venus Municipal Building (Near the ball field. Signs say Ridgefield Continuing Education, Kumon Math, Loosen Up Massage, Ridgefield Playhouse, and other organizations). Turn into the first parking area on the left. Park as close to the two story brick building with white trim as possible and enter at the door that faces Governor St., opposite the Police Department. Signs to Continuing Education are posted. If you need to avoid stairs, there is a disability ramp to an elevator at the rear of this building wing.
If you are using a GPS, you may "trick it" by using the address 52 Governor Street to get to the parking area and entrance at the Governor St. entrance.
Do not enter through the front entrance (Chef's Warehouse) that faces East Ridge because you will not be able to access the part of the building we are in from that entrance.
