Trailhead Name: 72nd and Riverside Drive
Trailhead Description: There is parking available on the street, but it is extremely difficult to find a parking spot. The bathrooms are available at nearby businesses like Starbucks, but I don't think there are any in the park itself. The good meeting point is at the north-west point of the intersection of 72nd and Riverside, right at the bottom-right corner of the park.
