  2. Availability
    • No advance reservations are permitted in our day parking lots.
    • Spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis to passenger vehicles and light-duty trucks.
    • Spots are sold and allocated only to vehicles on the premises and cannot be purchased in bulk for additional vehicles in your party which may arrive later (so plan to arrive together in a caravan).

  3. Cost & Payment
    • $25 per parking spot.

      • Via QR codes scanned into your smart phone (no apps required).
      • Via Square or PayPal.
    • CASH is quickest and best. Correct change is appreciated, or you can tell the attendant to keep the change to be donated to the Parker PTA!
