No, they can't stop you from parking there unless there is no parking sign *from the town* making it a no parking zone, or unless that is actually a private road owned by them, in which case, they would control the parking. Otherwise, you can park there--they can request that you do not do so, but that's all it would be: a request. The have no legal authority over a public road.
