Two important pieces of information regarding parking at VOA:

#1 - There will be a charge for parking and below details how you can prepaid prior to the event or during the event and which lane to enter.  Go to the left lane if you have prepaid parking and go to the right lane if you need to buy a pass.

#2 - There is construction at the park as they continue to improve it by adding a field house.  We will provide an update on Friday/Saturday on where to park for your games based on an update from the park district

As previously sent out there will be a parking fee at VOA Park and below are the instructions on prepaying for the pass and two maps; Entrance showing how lanes divide (left for pre-paid/passholders and right to purchase) & field map with color coded flags showing closest parking to fields your team is playing on.

WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU CARPOOL AS PARKING SPOTS WILL BE AT A PREMIUM & SAVE ON COSTS.

REMEMBER IF YOU LIVE IN BUTLER COUNTY YOUR PARKING PERMIT IS FREE BUT YOU MUST GET IT PRIOR TO EVENT NOT THE DAY OF THE EVENT


All vehicles entering a MetroPark must have a Motor Vehicle Permit that is either a daily ($5) or an annual ($10-non-resident and free for residents of Butler County). Individuals coming into the park may purchase these ahead of time or at the gate when entering the park for the tournament.

 

A few ways that Non-Residents can purchase the permits before the event are:

 

1.    Online at https://reservations.yourmetroparks.net/hang-tags/ . They can purchase these anytime and once purchased we will mail out the permit to them immediately. If they happen to purchase them online and do not have the permit yet via mail they can print a copy of their receipt and show that along with their ID at the game upon entering the park. They will not receive a pass at that time due to one had already been sent via mail but they will be permitted to enter the event with that proof.

 

2.    They may visit the MetroParks Administrative Office at 2051 Timberman Road Hamilton, OH 45013, Monday-Friday between 8:30am-5:00pm to purchase a permit

 

3.    They may visit the Voice of America MetroPark Welcome Center at 9850 VOA Park Drive West Chester, OH 45069, Monday-Friday 9:00am-5:00pm to purchase a permit.

 

4.    If there is an entire team or group that purchase multiple passes ahead of time I can arrange for them to be delivered to their hotel (if within Butler County) on Friday evening before the event.

 

5.    They may visit the park Friday evening between 5-9pm and purchase their pass at the Shelter back by the Athletic Field Complex.

 

6.    All others can purchase their pass as they are entering the park the day of the event. They will receive a pass that is labeled as a weekend pass but they can take that weekend pass and exchange it for an annual pass over at the VOA Welcome Center or Administrative Office the following week only. 

 

 

 

MetroParks will accept cash or credit card if they are pre paying for their permits but they must have cash if they are buying them at the Shelter on that Friday evening or at the entrance the day of the event.

 

Residents of Butler County can get their free Motor Vehicle Permit ahead of time by visiting:

 

1.    They may visit the MetroParks Administrative Office at 2051 Timberman Road Hamilton, OH 45013, Monday-Friday between 8:30am-5:00pm to receive a permit

 

2.    They may visit the Voice of America MetroPark Welcome Center at 9850 VOA Park Drive West Chester, OH 45069, Monday-Friday 8:30am-5:00pm to receive a permit.

 

3.    Visit any of our partner sites to receive a permit (please see attached list).

 

4.    They may contact us at 513-867-5835 and we can mail them a Resident permit but they must fax or email a copy of their drivers license for proof of residency.

 

5.    They may visit the park Friday evening between 5-9pm and receive their pass at the Shelter back by the Athletic Field Complex.


 

Attached two separate maps.  There is one of the entrance that shows how the lanes will divide. The lane to the left will be for all individuals who have pre purchased a pass or already have their Butler County Resident pass. The lane on the Right will be everyone who has not prepaid or received a pass yet (the right lane will split into multiple lanes further up to ensure a quick speed through the gates). The VOA Tournament map attached shows the color coded flags that they can park nearest to the fields they are playing on.

You will now be able to enter the park from both Cox Rd (main entrance) and Butler Warren Rd.  **PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE MESSAGE BELOW** 

If you enter off Butler Warren road you can only enter coming southbound.  You will not be able to turn left off Butler Warren Rd from Tylersville Rd.  There will be no prepaid lane meaning everyone entering this way will have to wait in line until those in front of them have bought a pass.

If you enter off Cox road the left lane will be for those that have prepaid parking permits and the right lane will be for those that must buy a pass.  Once you pass the buying/prepaid parking permit section you will be able to go right or left into the park.  Please check your field locations and they will help you determine which direction, left or right, you should go.  We will have parking staff helping to direct you where to park and if it does not meet your needs we apologize but we have to get everyone as quickly and safely to the fields as possible.  Please be kind to them as they are volunteers and trying their best they can to assist you.  As you will note in the map the parking behind fields 1,2,3 is under construction as they continue to improve the facility putting in a field house.  Those lost parking spots will be moved behind the paved parking lot behind fields 1,4,6.
