Directions to Reckling Park
The Rice Owls Baseball Camps will be conducted at Reckling Park, home of the 2003 NCAA World Series Champions. Since its opening day in February of 2000, this state-of-the-art facility has ranked as one of the top venues in college baseball. Reckling Park is located on the Rice University Campus at 6100 Main St. Primary entrances are #8 off University Boulevard or #18 off Rice Boulevard. Rice University Campus Map
The best way to get to Reckling Park is to enter the Rice University campus via Entrance 8 at the intersection of University and Stockton Boulevards. Once on campus, there will be a road about 30 yards from the entrance to your right next to the new Moody Center. Turn right down that road and it will take you in front of Reckling. Please follow that road until you reach an old tennis court located down the left-field line that has been converted into a parking lot. Camper pick-up and drop-off will take place in this parking lot, now called West Lot 6. Parking beyond drop-off and pick-up in this lot will not be allowed. You will be subject to ticketing/towing if you remain in this lot for the duration of camp.
If you wish to stay to watch camp and need to park, you have several options. You may park in West Lot 1 and/or the Moody Lot for $1 per 15 minutes or $12 max per day. Please note with this option that you will have to pay each time you exit and re-enter this lot. There is additional parking for a flat rate of $1.00 in the Greenbriar Lot on the West Side of the football stadium.
