Officers ready to ticket beach-goers who don't pay for parking

GALVESTON, TX

Paid parking along most of the seawall started a month ago, but police have been giving warnings, not tickets -- until now. There is a unit dedicated to checking vehicles to make sure they've paid to park.

A violation will get you a $17 ticket, so it is cheaper to follow the new rules and pay for parking. An hour of parking runs one dollar and to park for the entire day, it will cost you eight bucks.

Seawall Paid Parking:

  • Fee: $1 / hour, not to exceed $8 / day or $25 / year annual pass
  • Hours of Operation: 10:00AM - 6:00 PM, Daily
  • Payment Options: Pay by phone, Select Seawall Businesses

Paid parking areas will include the north and south sides of Seawall Boulevard from 6th to 69th Street and 81st to 103rd Street. The area between 69th and 81st Street will be free of charge.
