Borden Park Fireworks Parking / Festival of the Hills Parking
The city allows for parking at Borden Park but those spots disappear quickly early during the day of the event to people that stake out viewing spots at the park. Parking for the fireworks at Borden Park in Rochester Hills can be difficult as the City of Rochester Hills closes portions of Hamlin Road and limits access on John R Road near Borden Park after the Borden Park parking lot fills up. Fireworks goers can park at nearby shopping center parking lots on Rochester Rd and Hamlin Rd. St. Mary’s of the Hills Church (2675 John R Rd) offers parking for a fee (it’s $10 or under the last I checked). Be prepared to walk if you want to get close to the action. These parking options require a short walk to the park on public sidewalks with the shortest walk being from St Mary’s of the Hills Church.
