Handicap Parking

Handicap parking is available next to the Community Center and you must show your placard or have handicap tags on your vehicle to park, as this is limited parking space. Additionally, you can only enter from Glendale Street.

Shuttle Parking

Shuttle Parking is at HF Stevens Middle School located at 940 North Crowley Road, with free service to and from the park. The shuttle begins at 4 p.m., and buses run every 15 minutes, with the last shuttle leaving the park at 11 p.m.


The annual Celebration of Freedom Parade will not be held this year. For several years, this parade has been a staple of the Crowley community -- a celebration of patriotism, family and heritage. This decision was not arrived at lightly. It is our desire to provide a safe and quality event for all involved. The anticipated construction on Main Street and the construction in Bicentennial Park is expected to affect the overall layout of this event regarding staffing, parking and the parade route. After considering various options, the City Council and staff made the determination that it would not be feasible to host a parade this year.


If you are interested in participating in this event you may select the Vendor Application Packet below for more details and to apply for booth space.  Any additional questions please contact Julie Hepler at 817-297-2201 ext. 7040 or via email.
