Directions to Mr. Parizek’s Home – From the North: Take SR 51 south to Greenway Parkway and exit westbound on Greenway Parkway to 32nd Street (the first light). Turn left (southbound) on to 32nd Street and proceed south to the Acoma (second traffic signal).

From the South: Take SR 51 north to Thunderbird Road and exit westbound on Thunderbird Road to 32nd Street (the first light). Turn right (northbound) on to 32nd Street and proceed north to Acoma (first traffic signal).

From 32nd Street & Acoma: Turn (west bound) on to Acoma. Acoma will curve around a hill. Take the first left off of Acoma. Claire Drive is a cul-de-sac that goes up the hill. There is no street sign on Claire Drive and the first mail box that you’ll see will say 3101 East Acoma. You’re in the right place; it is the mail box that is in the wrong place. Come to the top of the cul-de-sac. My driveway is the one between the two small fences that goes to the top of the hill. Come on up there is plenty of room to park and to turn around.
