Driving

If you need an address to put in your GPS, use “10 Grove St, West Roxbury, MA 02132”. Or, look at this map.

You may not be able to park on Grove St immediately in front of the quarry, as the road is curved and there are ‘no-parking’ signs. However, you may park on other sections of Grove St and on adjacent residential streets.

Public transit? Yes!

From Forest Hills “upper busway”:

#35 bus (to Dedham Mall via Belgrade Ave). Buses on this route are scheduled to depart Forest Hills at 6:15 and 6:45 p.m. on Friday night. When the bus is traveling along Centre St, get off at Grove St. That’s the site of the rally! You’ll see West Roxbury Crushed Stone where the road forks to your left (Grove St), and the rally will be at that fork.

– OR –

#34 bus (to Dedham Line Via Washington St). Buses on this route are scheduled to depart Forest Hills at 6:20 and 6:50 p.m. on Friday night. As the bus travels SW (outbound) along Washington St, it will announce “Grove St.” Get off here. Turn right onto Grove St. Walk for 10 minutes until you see West Roxbury Crushed Stone on your right. The rally is on your left.

Leaving the rally: Catch the #35 bus back to Forest Hills. It is scheduled to return at 8:23 p.m. as it travels north along the West Roxbury Crushed Stone side of Grove St. Or, walk a few minutes south to Washington St and catch the #34 back to Forest Hills.

You can input “West Roxbury Crushed Stone Co” as an address in MBTA.com’s “Trip Planner” website to find your own directions.
