City of Tyler changes parking plan for Fourth of July event at Lindsey Park

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Tyler's Parks and Recreation Department is urging attendees of tonight's Fourth of July festivities at Lindsey Park to avoid parking on the grass at the park.

Officials with the Parks and Recreation Department said the grass is very damp after the storms that blew through East Texas Tuesday night, and they don't want any damage to be done to the grassy areas of the park.

Instead, people who plan to attend the Fourth of July event at the park may park at the Harvey Civic Center. Starting at 4 p.m. today, shuttles will run from the Harvey Civic Center to Lindsey Park, and the shuttles will run every 20 minutes.

The shuttles will continue to run until after the fireworks show wraps up.

The gates will open at Lindsey Park at 2 p.m., and admission is free. There will be concessions, games, a Kids' Zone, and other family-friendly activities starting at 4 p.m., and the fireworks show is expected to start at about 9:15 p.m. Live entertainment will include the Groove Slaves and Faber and Friends, according to a press release.

Lindsey Park will be closed to the public today until 2 p.m., so the Parks and Recreation Department can prepare for the Fourth of July festivities.

Lindsey Park is located at 12557 Spur 364 West. The park's gate is located off of Spur 364.
