Jaycee Park Parking/Speed Reminders

on .

It is very important that all drivers are aware of the speed limit and the parking restrictions in the neighborhood and in the park itself. Again, I was notified last night that there were multiple cars parked on the grass.

For all home games at Jaycee Park, please ask all of your families to park on the school side parking lot. This will allow our visitors to park in the main parking lot on the west side of the field and hopefully avoid the grass parking.

Jaycee Park is in a residential neighborhood. The speed limit is 25 mph in the neighborhood. Police presence is very high during the soccer seasons. The speed limit in the park is 15 mph. In the community and within the park there is high pedestrian traffic, please adhere to the posted speeds and stop signs.

Jaycee Park has parking on both sides of the park. As you enter the park, you may want to turn to the left where there are ample parking spots available near the play structure. There is absolutely NO PARKING on the grass or along the drive. Cars not parked in designated parking spaces will be ticketed. The circle drive MUST be kept open for emergency vehicles.

As a club we take pride in our relationship with the city of Livonia and its residents. Please help us maintain that relationship by following all of the above rules, by disposing of all garbage in the trash receptacles, and by treating the entire park with respect and care.
