The simple Map below shows that Bowser Road makes a T with Brett Road, but Brett actually bears to Left after passing Bowser on the right. The CoRE bldg is directly in front of you at this point with Lot 64 the next right and also ahead. Lot 64 is closer to the CoRE bldg and is also parking for Sonny Werblin Recreation Center that you will see on signs.
Or you can turn right at Bowser to park in Lots 60A or B.
