The objective of the Bethany Beach Parking Department is to insure safe, legal, and full utilization of all parking spaces within town limits. Enforcement of regulations is a necessary adjunct to order within the community. All ordinances are based on Delaware Criminal and Traffic Laws. The Parking Director is responsible for the planning and enforcement of Town ordinances, based on direction from the Town Manager. Parking Enforcement Officers are empowered to issue summonses for all parking violations.

All public parking spaces are either pay-to-park or require a parking permit every day from May 15 through September 15. Parking is free the remainder of the year.

Our 1,000 public parking spaces are all within two blocks of the beach. In the summer on Saturdays and Sundays, all parking spaces fill by about 10:30 AM.

We have about 700 spaces on our east/west streets which require either a resident or business parking permit available to town property and business owners.
