In preparation for construction on the City Center project, a Temporary Parking Plan and a new Parking Ordinance is being implemented in Downtown Garland. The Parking Ordinance for three-hour, time-limited parking on select streets in the Downtown area will help support Downtown merchants by discouraging full-day employees from taking prime parking spaces that are needed to serve customers. Beginning July 15, violators will receive a citation with a $75 fine.

Parking for Granville Arts Center Patrons - There is abundant parking available for patrons attending events and performances at the Granville Arts Center. In addition to the Granville Arts Center parking areas and the adjoining DART lot, patrons also may park in the Fifth Street Parking Garage free of charge. The entrance to the garage is on Fifth Street directly across from The Atrium and next to Fifth Street Market.
