You could get a ticket if you park or drive on any city park land.

The City of Lubbock's Park and Recreation warning motorists that driving on park property results in damage to both turf and irrigation sprinkler systems and can result in costly repairs.

Citizens should hand carry items from the street or parking lot to the interior of a park. This includes bounce houses, climbing walls, tents, and other large items for party rentals or other activities in our city parks.

Now if the police will also ticket vehicles parked adjacent to NO PARKING signs. If the police are still too frightened to enforce such law, then traffic control should remove the signs near the schools, so that law abiding citizens will have the same freedom to park as the law breakers.
