Location Notes:  You will be turning on to Westwanda Dr. from Benedict Canyon Dr.  In 0.1 mile you’ll arrive at 9940 Westwanda Dr. and you will see an InsightLA wooden sign pointing up the graveled driveway that leads up a hill.  Follow the driveway up to the top of the hill and park at the top on your left.  Please pull in as far as you can, as some cars will need to be double parked.  If you arrive and don’t see spots available on your left, you can drive straight past the gate entrance and park on the left after the sheds.  Please park as far back as possible so that more cars can fill in behind you.
