Q. Am I allowed to park on the streets within Village Walk South?
A. There are two visitors' parking areas - at the Club House and on 7th Street, which together provide about 8 parking spaces. The spaces are for guests only.

Street parking is generally permitted elsewhere, except that laneways may not be blocked and no overnight parking is permitted on the street, ever. Offenders may have their vehicles ticketed.

Q. What is the function of the chain-link gate at the end of 7th Street.
A. The gate controls access from a ramp leading from Indian River Boulevard. It is locked at all times. The purpose of the gate is to allow access to the fire department and other emergency service providers, who have keys for the locks.
Q. How do I operate the telephone entry system at the gates?
A. When the gates are activated, a visitor can use the telephone entry box to call up a display of residents' names. Beside each name is a 3-digit code. The visitor dials the code and the resident's telephone will ring. Once communication is established, if the resident wishes to admit the visitor, he or she dials "9", which will cause the gates to open. Then simply hang up.
