thumbnail for College Av:Miles AvDuring daylight and business hours, this parking lot serves exactly as that, a parking lot. Come 6 pm, this parking lot becomes a bike polo arena with multiple bikers attempting to hit a plastic ball into their opponents' goal. After polo finishes up, Thursdays at 9 pm, the childhood sport of Foursquare takes over making this parking lot into a underground sports arena.
