Como Lake can most easily be approached on Lexington Ave about half way between I 94 and Hwy 36, which both have Lexington Ave exits.

From Minneapolis go East on either I94 or north on 35W to Hwy 36 East.

From St Paul go West on I 94 or north on 35E to Hwy 36 West.

From I94 drive north on Lexingon Ave; from Hwy 36 drive south on Lexington Ave.

When you come to Como Lake, Lexington Ave will curve slightly away from, and around, the west side of Como Lake. You’re then right near, and in sight of, the white pavilion to the east of Lexington Ave. on Como Lake. Parking is located on both sides of the Pavilion, to the north and south.

The Pavilion building includes restrooms. Often the Black Bear Crossings Cafe will be open for hot or cold drinks and food.

Directions to Indoor Events:

Bethel University’s Sports & Recreation Center’s Indoor Track in Arden Hills, MN :

Arden Hills is a nearby north suburb of St Paul and Minneapolis.

Exit I35W just south of I694 at Co Rd E2 (first exit south of I694), go east to O.S.T.H. 10 (formerly Old Snelling Ave), which is a T (you're now facing Lake Valentine across which is located the Bethel U campus).

Bethel U's west entrance is just a mile south, or right, on O.S.T.H. 10.

If a campus security guard asks, you're going to the Sports and Recreation Center (SRC) which houses the indoor track.

Follow the road to the south (right), and the building is next to the southernmost parking lot. We use this facility from about October to May for indoor track Training Times sessions and our Fall-Winter Indoor Challenge Events Series of five Events.
