Actually that would be good for it! I pay a guy with a tractor and a lawn roller to roll my lawn every year! Now if I had 20 bonnies park on it that would save me the time and the trouble! Rolling the lawn compacts the roots and makes for good undergrowth and root structures.........so next month everyone make sure you park ON Bill'* lawn......you'll be doing him a favor!

Wierd. I've heard the exact opposite. Too much heavy traffic causes what'* called thatching, which has to be removed in order for air and water to properly get into the soil..... Now I don't know what the heck to believe.....

Thick lawn and mowing too infrequently causes thatch. Aka dead grass suffocating new seedlings from growing up through.

This is why I feel like I spend half my summer mowing the darn lawn...lol

You can break into the Toronto Rogers Centre overnight and "borrow" some! (Rogers Centre aka SkyDome).
