Is there anyway to open up additional parking at Red River park? Moving the east side barricades south would Allow for additional parking in the grass on the east side of the ball fields just east of the “circle”. Also, The newest no parking sign is actually facing south into the circle instead of west towards the bay which is very deceiving and causing a very big headache. We have the the room to park but it’s completely blocked off way before the damage from the high water. It would be nice if the only bay access point in the county got the attention it deserves
