Last year we got stuck in the middle of all the traffic by parking near town center (it was our first year going) and I noticed that people don't necessarily have to park that close to still see the fireworks. We live in Woodstream off of Mills Branch, wondering how close to our house could we still go and be able to see the fireworks? Someone suggested the park and ride on WLH?
Yes you can see the fireworks at the park and ride lot but the last time we went there the back gates were on a timer and closed at 9:00 right when the fireworks started. Someone pried one of the gates open and we were able to drive out with no problem. I don't know if they still shut automatically at 9 and if they do and aren't pried open I don't know what it's like for everyone to get out the one entrance that lets out on WLH. Another suggestion would be the Randalls parking lot then after the fireworks drive east on KW Dr. to Mills Branch.
The gates to the entrance of the Park and Ride do close at nine. So you have to enter and exit on WLH side. Not a big deal, you are at your car anyway, and by the time they are over, you are out and gone before you get hit with the traffic from Town Center.
Can't imagine why anyone would pry the door open. You just have to drive around, it isn't a big deal.
If we get there early, we back into the blocked entrance, and set out chairs and watch from there. Then we have zero traffic when we leave
