Washington Park Marina Parking

Due to the limited amount of parking available at the marina, seasonal slip holders are issued two stickers per slip. In the event that your vehicle is sold, you must remove the old sticker and return it to the Port Authority before a new one is issued.

Guest Parking

Guest parking and charter customer parking will be restricted from May 15th to September 15 on weekends, holidays and special events and will be handled as follows: The west marina lot by the Port Authority office is restricted to slip holder sticker parking only. Daily guest passes are restricted to parking at the memorial in front of the Coast Guard station. The east marina lot located by the fish cleaning station will be restricted on weekends, holidays and special events to sticker parking only. Guests may use main Park Department parking (lot 1). Please be aware that lot 1 closes nightly and vehicles may not remain in lot 1 overnight. It is extremely important that we follow these simple guidelines to insure all boaters have adequate parking. Vehicles in violation will be towed at the owners expense and subject to a fine.

Trailer Parking

Trailer parking is strictly prohibited in the Washington Park Marina lots. However, daily parking is available for ramp users in the Park department lot as well as daily, weekly & overnight parking at the Trail Creek Marina.
