  • Directions to meeting location for third Wednesday meetings (709 Riley Fuzzel Road, Spring, Texas):

    Aldine-Westfield dead ends into Riley Fuzzel Road just northeast of Old Town Spring so there are several ways to get there:

    1. Take the Rayford/Sawdust exit and go East (right) on Rayford Rd. After about 4 miles, take a right (south) onto Grand Parkway Frontage Road / Riley Fuzzel Road.  Drive 1.4 miles to the Dennis Johnston Park (on the right before Hardy Toll Road and after the Spring Creek Bridge).  Turn right into the park & drive all the way around following the curve to the left until you reach the Old Stone Lodge.

    2. From I45, take Spring Cypress Road exit east and across the railroad tracks to Aldine Westfield through Olde Town Spring, turn left onto Aldine Westfield and then right onto Riley Fuzzel for a short distance to get to Dennis Johnston Park.  It will be on the left after Hardy Toll Road and before the Spring Creek Bridge. Turn left into the park & drive all the way around following the curve to the left until you reach the Old Stone Lodge.

    3. Take Aldine Westfield north from Mercer Arboretum until it dead ends into Riley Fuzzel. Turn right on Riley Fuzzel, go under the Hardy Toll Road freeway and turn left into Dennis Johnston Park (before the Spring Creek Bridge).  Drive all the way around following the curve to the left until you reach the Old Stone Lodge.

    Watch for a sign for the Park on the north side of Riley Fuzzel. You will need to drive all the way back to the Lodge and the parking next to it.
