**Parking at Halff Park – new rules include towing

The Garland Parks and Recreation Department installed new parking signs at the Halff Park at Ranger Drive parking lot regarding parking during the school day.

Any cars parked at Halff Park during the school day for over 3 hours will be towed. So, when you are visiting the Preserve on a school day using Halff Park as your base, make sure you return to your car within 3 hours.

This is to discourage students from Naaman Forest High School who are parking there for free, rather than buying a student parking sticker. So many students try parking there for free that there are no spaces left for park visitors. The hotels and other businesses in the area already have similar rules. Enforcement started on October 17.

The restriction on time and the towing possibility is only for the Halff Park parking lot. You can park at the 1770 and 1787 Holford Road parking areas all day until the park closes at midnight.
