City orders drivers to keep off the grass


Lubbock Police will issue tickets to those who park or drive on City grass or landscaping. City of Lubbock Code of Ordinances Section 16-131 prohibits citizens from keeping their vehicles parked in a City park. City officials want to remind folks that the ordinance also includes grass on soccer fields or little league baseball fields.

The city wants to avoid repairs or replacement of irrigation sprinkler systems, which can be quite costly. The upkeep of landscaping or replacement of turf can add up as well. The goal is to keep costs down, they say, for residents to get the most enjoyment out of local City parks.
