"New Farm PARKING Rules" 
(We want to continue WITHOUT upsetting our neighbors. Thank you)
  •  You are welcome to PARK or Drop-off AT our HOUSE. Our driveway is steep but safe! "Please NO PARKING ON PALOMINO Road"  it looks harmless to stop near our driveway but it prohibits safe flow of traffic on the two lane road. 
  • Please Park at the house, we have plenty of space. We will direct traffic if multiple cars and get everyone through the process as quick as possible.
  • YOU CAN PARK UP AT THE INTERSECTION  of "Williams Way", "Palomino Rd." and "Vista Elevata" and walk down to the farm. 
"Please do not block driveways or CAR lanes on any street! It is a beautiful place to walk AND ENJOY A healthy STROLL. Park at the house if you are not able to walk up a steep hill. Please wear walking shoes so you can walk safely up and down a hill."-RP
