Neighborhood Parking Maps

In our efforts to be environmentally conscious, beginning in January 2022 the City of Tampa will no longer be mailing out individual neighborhood letters and parking maps for Gasparilla. Access to all Gasparilla-related information including street closures, timelines, and parking restrictions can be located using the buttons below. This new interactive feature allows residents to input their home addresses and access parking restrictions in their respective neighborhoods.
