Entertainment District No Parking

In 2018, the Arlington City Council adopted an Entertainment District No Parking Ordinance designed to protect neighborhoods closest to AT&T Stadium from traffic congestion and other nuisances stemming from fans who park in front of homes instead of at designated public parking lots.

The ordinance prohibits on-street parking in three residential areas only during certain AT&T Stadium events that are projected to draw large crowds. The City Council approved the City’s ability to establish these temporary No Parking zones in response to residents’ concerns.

The Arlington Police Department held neighborhood meetings in the summer of 2018 to answer questions from affected property owners. Further questions about the Entertainment District No Parking Zones can be sent to eventparking@arlingtontx.gov.

Residents who live on protected streets are encouraged to sign up through the Event Parking email above to receive Arlington Police Department notifications by email regarding the times and dates when the No Parking zones will be in effect. These events, which are determined at the Police Department’s discretion, will include all Cowboys home games as well as concerts, sporting events and other high-profile activities at the stadium, which can hold up to 100,000 fans.

Email notifications will be sent up to seven days prior to the event. The City has installed folding No Parking signs, which are flipped open to be visible when on-street parking is not permitted. The No Parking rules will be enforced during the hours that the stadium event is underway.

What Residents and Visitors Should Know:

Three Entertainment District No Parking Zones have been established (maps are hyperlinked for reference). These areas are generally identified as:

  • Stadium West Zone: This area is directly west of AT&T Stadium and is roughly bounded by Slaughter Street to the north, Collins Street to the east, North Street to the south and Mesquite Street to the west. Click here to see the map.
  • Roosevelt Zone: This area is northwest of AT&T Stadium and is roughly bounded by Andrews Street to the north, Collins Street to the east, Randol Mill Road to the south and Mesquite Street to the west. Click here to see the map.
  • Woodbrook Zone: This area is north of AT&T Stadium and is roughly bounded by Road to Six Flags Street to the north, Willowbrook Street to the east, Woodbrook Street to the south and Collins Street to the west. Click here to see the map.

Additionally:

  • During Cowboys home games and other select major events at AT&T Stadium, on-street parking will not be allowed on protected residential streets where No Parking signs are visible.
  •  Any vehicles parked on-street where No Parking signs are visible are subject to being towed or fined.
  • Exceptions to the ordinance include vehicles stopped to make deliveries, drop off passengers, or to provide maintenance, repair or lawn service to a residence within the Entertainment District No Parking Zone.
  • Residents who live in the designated Entertainment District No Parking Zones are encouraged to sign up to receive email alerts from the Arlington Police Department for event times and dates when the on-street Entertainment District No Parking ordinance is in effect.

Schedule:

The first expected activation of the No Parking Zones for 2021 will be Sept. 27 for the Philadelphia Eagles vs Dallas Cowboys game.

Activations are also expected to occur on Oct. 3, Oct. 10, Oct. 23, Nov. 7, Nov. 14, Nov. 25 (Thanksgiving), Dec. 26, Dec. 31 (New Years Eve), and Jan, 2, 2022.
