Parking Ordinances

All ordinances, including parking ordinances, can be viewed here in the Document Center.

Beach Parking

Paid parking is in effect at Pere Marquette Beach and other nearby parks from May 15th to September 15th. Beach parking passes can be purchased from several kiosks in the area. There are daily and seasonal passes available at the kiosks. If a seasonal pass is purchased at the kiosk, it is recommended that it be turned in for a sticker decal that must be affixed to the driver side lower window. If no daily/seasonal pass is visible, a $30.00 parking ticket will be issued.

  • Please note: City of Muskegon residents do not have to pay a fee for a pass but must still obtain and display a pass from the Muskegon Police Department.
