We are just days away from the 36th annual Collierville Independence Day Celebration.
On Saturday, July 2 we will celebrate together at H.W. Cox Park (440 W Powell Road) starting with food vendors open at 6:30 p.m., entertainment at 7 p.m., and the fireworks show at 9:30 p.m.
One of the questions we frequently hear before the event is: “Where do I park?”
The only parking available inside Cox Park is handicapped parking (please
have your handicap tag shown in your vehicle). There is no public parking inside the park, so visitors will need to park in surrounding neighborhoods.
The Collierville Police Department is asking everyone to follow these guidelines for parking and exiting the park:
• Only handicapped parking is available in Cox Park
• There is no parking on Powell Road
• There is no shuttle service
• Do not block driveways, fire hydrants, or intersections when you park
Post event traffic information:
Vehicles in the park and all traffic west of the park (Byhalia Road side) will have to go to Byhalia Road.
Vehicles east of the park (Peterson Lake side) will have to go to Peterson Lake.
The Collierville Police Department Mobile Command Post will be parked and manned near the Community Center buildings. If you need police assistance and you cannot locate an officer or volunteer in the park, stop by the Mobile Command Post or call 901.853.3207 for Collierville Police Dispatch. Dial 911 ONLY in an emergency.
