Parking Changes for S. Block Avenue in Walker Park
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Baseball season begins this weekend at Walker Park. Participants are advised that parking on the east side of S. Block Avenue, between 13th Street and 7th Street, will no longer be allowed. Vehicles parked on both sides of the roadway creates a safety issue and limited access for emergency vehicles. S. Block Avenue at this location is not wide enough to support parallel parking on both sides of the roadway and still provide safe access for two-way traffic.
Delineated parallel parking spaces are available on the west side of the roadway; the center line on S. Block Avenue has been shifted to the east. “No parking” signs have been installed on the east side of the roadway and will be enforced. Thank you for your cooperation with this parking change to maintain safe access to our recreational facilities.
