*On the map, Digital Resident Parking Zones (DPRZ) are resident-only parking areas. Pay to Park/DPRZ parking areas are open to residents and visitors.

To manage parking and traffic demand, features of the pilot include:

  • Pay-to-park on-street parking Monday through Sunday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Digital environment for parking payments—there are no physical parking meters in the area
  • Digital Resident Parking Zones, active Monday through Sunday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Download the Park ATX mobile app to manage your parking sessions.

Trail Visitor Access

For visitors accessing the trailhead, Scottish Woods Trail has pay-to-park on-street parking spaces available. The price of parking depends on the parking session length.

Resident and Guest Parking in Digital Resident Parking Zones (DRPZ)

Residents and their guests on Scottish Woods Trail, Scottish Woods Cove, Shannon Oaks Trail, Wild Briar Pass and Surrey Hill Drive may park on the street with proper permits or Park ATX validation codes. All households with valid addresses are eligible for these permits and validation codes. Austin Transportation will provide each household:

  • Two physical hang tag permits for resident parking, to hang from the rearview mirror during restricted parking hours (Monday through Sunday 8 a.m-8 p.m.)
  • One Park ATX validation code for parking on the street during restricted parking hours, valid for 10 uses per day, for guests or additional household members

If your hang tag is lost or stolen, please inform Austin Transportation Department at parking@austintexas.gov. The department will not replace lost or stolen hang tags.

No-Parking Areas

Parking is prohibited:

  • On Barclay Drive and Camp Craft Road
  • Near most intersections in the neighborhood for improved sight distance
  • At fire hydrants

Community Feedback

Austin Transportation will open a survey to gather feedback from Woods of Westlake residents and trailhead visitors to develop a permanent solution at the end of the pilot. If you have any questions, you may contact parking@austintexas.gov.

Frequently Asked Questions

Residents must display permits in their vehicles during restricted parking hours in the area, which is 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. daily.

What is a digital environment?

The digital environment allows people to pay for parking through a mobile app instead of at physical pay stations. This reduces paper waste and enhances convenience for the parking experience.

Whenever possible, Austin Transportation recommends that guests park on available private driveway space of the household they are visiting. For street parking, residents may have guests use their household hang tags or Park ATX validation code.
