Starting Memorial Day weekend (May 27-30) and continuing through the Chautauqua summer season (Saturday, June 18 until Monday, Sept. 5), there will be a change to the South Gate operating schedule.
From Sunday-Wednesday evenings (with the exception of Monday, July 4), the South Gate entrance will be closed from 11 p.m.-7 a.m. From Thursday-Saturday evenings, the South Gate entrance will be closed from 1-5 a.m. This includes the South Gate booth, Welcome Center and Route 163 black iron gate outside the South Gate Parking Lot.
Traffic will be directed to the Fifth Street Gate, which is open 24 hours, seven days a week.
The South Gate Parking Lot will be accessible from inside the gates, with traffic directed to the Fifth Street Gate for exiting. The shuttle will continue its regular route from 7 a.m.-11 p.m.
The East and West Second Street Gates will operate from 7 a.m.-11 p.m. Monday-Friday and 8 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday-Sunday
In order to control traffic, Lakeside is asking those who already have a Daily, Weekly or Season Chautauqua Pass, and do not need to purchase a pass, to use the East or West Second Street Gates when possible.
