Head south (away from the Bay) on Rengstorff Ave. (in Mountain View) from 101 or Central Expressway until you cross the train tracks. Then turn left at the intersection (with a traffic light) that says "Stanford Ave.-->" and
"<--Community Center". That puts you into the Community Center's parking lot. In the parking lot, veer to the right, and then turn left, and park alongside the right-hand side of the Community Center. Enter where you see the Humanist Community sign.
