By public transportation:
Take the 77, 79, or 67 bus line up Massachusetts Avenue to Arlington Center and get off at the Arlington Town Hall (near the intersection of Pleasant/Mystic Street and Massachusetts Avenue). Walk along the left side of the Town Hall building (as you face it) up the brick path into the park, then up a set of stairs at the back of the park. At the top of the steps, you will be in a parking lot; take a left. The TS is the blue-gray house with the porch.

By car:

--From Mass Ave traveling west (away from Somerville/Boston): Drive along Mass Ave until you reach Arlington Center which is at the intersection of Mass Ave and Pleasant Street/Route 60. Take a left at the light onto Pleasant Street. Then, take your first right onto Maple Street.  Here you have two options:
(a) Park on Maple Street and walk up the driveway alongside No. 19 Maple St. The TS is the blue-gray house behind it. OR
(b) Proceed to the end of Maple Street. Make a right turn and then another IMMEDIATE right directly after the Senior Center’s red brick building (It looks like a driveway.).  Continue to the back of the parking lot and you will see the TS/No. 21. It is a blue-gray house.

--From Mass Ave traveling east (toward Somerville/Boston):  Proceed along Mass Ave until you reach Academy Street (it’s the street just before the big intersection). Make a right turn onto Academy Street.  Then, make a left into the second driveway – The Senior Center red brick building will be on your right. Continue to the back of the parking lot and you will see the TS/No. 21. It is a blue-gray house.
