One of the last times I went home to Hazard I took two friends with me. My Grandpa thought we should show them the Goose. We drove up right in front of the Goose and parked without a problem. The Mother Goose gas station is located next to the Goose, so you can park there if you did not want to park in front of the actual buildings. The Goose's eyes light up at night, so you may want to drive by it at night.
