cannot verify business / Address issue

I have a business that is outdoors, open 8 months out of the year.  Because it is outdoors in a park, there is not address that the verification code can be mailed to.  The option to get a verification via phone does not come up as an option.  How do I verify ownership of my google business listing without a mailing address?
