A wide drive passed in front of the entrance. As you could see here, the parking lots were arranged one after the other to the left of the road.

The entrance that faced the road featured two columns with lights on top. Each was tastefully decorated for Christmas. The sign on the base of the tower on the right listed the hours as, "Hours: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m." The sign on the base of tower on the right declared, "No Pets Allowed."

A bench was placed far enough in from the front entrance so that someone waiting could not see a car pull up. And it was far enough from the actual entrance that such early rest seemed unnecessary.
