There is a Temporary Parking Pass available for anyone that needs parking. Usually you need a Zone 6 sticker on most of the streets to avoid a ticket. There is free parking on the “Tenessee Ave” street side of the park across the street as well as free parking from Friday evening until Monday morning. There is a $250 fee if the Parking Pass is not returned. They only issue one per house a year and they are difficult to replace. It is also an inconvenience to all other future guests in need of the pass. Thank You!

There is a cat named PAPA in the backyard. He used to live inside until he decided to stop using his litter box…now he is a beloved outdoor cat. He may forget this at times and try to come in….please just escort him out again. He has a house and food outside…he knows better and he knows where it is! [smile]
