View traffic and parking with this interactive webmap.
In order to protect the safety of the pedestrians and those driving in to the sports complex, the city will close Hidden Creek Parkway at SE Gardens Boulevard between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. Traffic on Gardens Boulevard will be required to turn right (west) onto Hidden Creek Parkway. Advanced warning signs regarding the closures will be posted at Gardens and Irene and at Schumacher and Irene. No later than 9 p.m. Hidden Creek Parkway will be closed to through traffic at Irene Street. You can enter Chisenhall Fields Complex at the entrance near the Hidden Creek/Irene Street intersection and at the main arched entrance on Hidden Creek. Once the lot fills up, only the arched entrance will be open. No off-road parking is allowed at Bailey Lake.
The sports complex will have additional spots marked for handicapped parking. Once the parking lot is full no other vehicles will be allowed in the park. When the event is over and vehicles start leaving the complex, for safety reasons, no vehicles will be allowed to enter the complex for approximately 30-40 minutes so that pedestrians and vehicles can clear the park. Those picking up people from the celebration will be allowed in to the complex once the majority of vehicles are clear.
Once the fireworks show ends and traffic begins to leave the park, drivers may turn right, only (towards I-35W), out of the Chisenhall Fields main arched entrance on to Hidden Creek. Drivers may turn left, only, out of the entrance closest to Irene Street. That left turn takes drivers toward the Irene Street intersection and Hwy. 174/Wilshire Boulevard. If you are on Irene Street heading southwest toward Hidden Creek Parkway, Irene will be closed to through traffic at the intersection with Garrett Street, detouring traffic right to Meador Lane then left to Lisa Street then left to Hidden Creek and finally right to Wilshire Boulevard.
There are more than 600 parking spaces at Chisenhall Fields, more than 200 spaces available for overflow at Hidden Creek Sports Complex and a limited number of parking spaces at the newly opened Bailey Lake Park, again no off-road parking is allowed at Bailey Lake. Sidewalks connect the venue.
