Changes to Green Lake’s Street Parking

September 23, 2014 6:00am


If you’ve parked after dark near the Green Lake Village or the Community Center area in the past few weeks, you’ve probably noticed these silly signs announcing extended evening hours for paid parking. The signs announce SDOT’s recent move to increase curbside paid parking rates all over the city. Green Lake currently has the lowest per hour rate in the entire city at $1 an hour. What’s changing is the paid parking now continues until 8 p.m.

An SDOT official told us recently that these signs serve as warnings through September but strict enforcement will take place during the extended hours beginning in October. So make sure you pack a few extra quarters to pay the fare.
