We’ve known it was coming for a while, and it’s almost here — we have to pay to park at Moncus Park in Lafayette.
The paid parking model begins Tuesday, August 16 to support ongoing park operations and maintenance.
General admission to the park remains free, and visitors who bike or walk can enter Moncus Park for free.
Parking in the car parks at Moncus Park costs as follows:
- Price per hour – $2.00
- First 1/2 hour – FREE
- Maximum rate per day – $10.00
- Lost ticket per day – $10.00
- Mondays – FREE
- VAT is included in all parking rates
Volunteers, program partners or visitors upon request by Moncus Park will be given free parking validated at the time of the scheduled appointment.
When special events are held at the park, other park fees may apply and vary (but will be announced in advance).
Friends of Moncus Park, the park’s annual membership program, receive special park discounts. Members with a level of $100 or more get the first hour free with every visit. Members worth $1,000 or more receive an annual parking permit.
“As a community-supported park, every dollar makes a difference when looking after a property of this size,” said JP MacFadyen, executive director of Moncus Park. “Our intent is to have a paid parking plan that serves our community. With the ability to use all of our features for free, we’re confident this is the way forward.”
