Student Parking Permits
Each school year, a portion of the parking spots at the Community Center and at Round Lake Park may be purchased by Eden Prairie High School students for use during the school day. Permits are sold on a first-come first-served basis.
Students have the option to park at Round Lake Park or at the Community Center for the length of the school year.
Community Center staff are reaching out to those who purchased parking permits for the 2019–2020 academic year from the Community Center, and processing prorated refunds for the amount of time the pass was unusable.
