Parking


Parking at Keswick


Parking at Keswick Park will be limited on July 4th. There will be handicapped parking at the Community Building on Keswick Drive. There will also be parking on the Keswick Park softball and t-ball fields and Chamblee Middle School, with shuttles running from the fields to the event area. Guests arriving to the event later in the evening should consider the alternative parking methods discussed below, as parking at Keswick will fill early.

Shuttle from Chamblee Plaza


There will be a parking area behind IHOP at Chamblee Plaza available during the July 4th Celebration.  Guests can park in this area, which will be marked with "trolley parking and pickup" signs.  Guests can take the shuttle that will make stops between 5-11pm or walk to Keswick. Shuttle wait times will vary depending on the size of the crowd and traffic, and wait times could be lengthy directly before and after the fireworks.

Chamblee Rail Trail


The Chamblee Rail Trail will be open for this year's July 4th Celebration. Catch the rail trail near Walmart and enjoy a short, scenic walk to the festival.  The Rail Trail is the best way to avoid the July 4th traffic!
