From the photos I've found, most of the pathways in Humboldt Park appear to be lit by skyward-facing clear globe fixtures. but if you can get far enough out into the middle of one of the fields, they may not be too disruptive to viewing. Near the center of the park is a large parking lot. There are asphalt pathways leading from the lot to many different fields. There is one particular field to the east of the parking lot that looks particularly inviting. It is big and wide open with only a few big trees in two corners of the field. It is bordered by the pond to its north. The nearby lot and pathways should make it easily accessible to the public and easy for us to transport our equipment in and out. Another option would be setting up directly in the middle of the four ball fields to the south of the parking lot. Although, that location would put you closer to the glare-bomb cobra lamps that light Humboldt Drive.
