The best place to park for TCU home football games

We have 3 types of parking spots available. Grass, Reserved Paved and Tailgate spots. Tailgate spots include a reserved parking space next to the building and an area adjacent for you to setup a tent and tailgate with your friends.

Alice Carlson Applied Learning Center is a Fort Worth ISD Elementary School across Cantey from Texas Christian University. Our proximity to TCU makes our school the closest off-campus parking location to Amon G. Carter Stadium with barely a five-minute walk.

The parking program is run entirely by volunteer parents from the Alice Carlson PTA. Our efforts (and 100% of the funds received) go to fund the arts and applied learning curriculum programs at our kids’ school.

Most of the season parking spots are general admission – we guarantee you a spot on game day and the spots (mostly on our school’s field) will be assigned as you arrive. We make sure that no one is blocked in so that you can leave anytime during the game, if necessary.

Our PTA volunteers (parents with real jobs during the day and kid’s math homework at night) will arrive 3 hours before game time to open the lots and guide you to the next available spot.

We will ensure that your reserved spot on the lot is available until 30 minutes after the scheduled game start time. After this time, we will deem your spot open for Guest Parkers.

Each season parking patron will receive a parking pass that they can transfer to any vehicle.
