Installation Directions & Map

Goldfish Sam Murals Installation Directions at Mill & Main Place, Maynard, MA

In Maynard, Massachusetts, turn into the Gateway Plaza at the 9 Mill & Main Place entrance, across the street from the Maynard Post Office.  From the 9 Mill & Main Place entrance take an immediate left, alongside the Assabet River, before the lower garage that is on the right.  Go down the one-way path towards the destination between 6 and 7 Mill & Main Place.  There is a small lot with few parking spaces.  The Goldfish Sam Murals Installation is between buildings 6 and 7 in an inlet on the right, on the inlet’s righthand side, labeled “The Commons.”  Welcome!
