On January 10th, 2014 parking pay stations were installed in Washington Park. All parking proceeds are reinvested in improvements in and around the park, including:
- Better maintenance and security
- Free park-wide shuttle service
- Improved safety for drivers, cyclists, pedestrians and disabled visitors (for example: better signs, barrier-free sidewalks, and crosswalks)
- A new park-wide master plan
Parking is charged in all numbered parking spaces in the park:
$4.00/All Day (Oct-Mar)
$6.40/All Day (Apr-Sept)
Parking fees are required between the hours of 9:30 AM and 9:30 PM on the southern side of the park (from the Vietnam Veterans of Oregon Memorial lot to the Zoo area) and between 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM for the northern end of the park (Hoyt Arboretum to the tennis courts, Int’l Rose Test Gardens and northern entrances of the park).
On busy days, the lots may be congested and are often full. Visitors are encouraged to ride the bus, take MAX, or carpool if possible.
All persons displaying a disabled placard must pay to park. The only exception to this is if the placard clearly says “WHEELCHAIR USER” and it is displayed on the vehicle. For more information on disabled parking in the City of Portland, please click here.
The City of Portland monitors and enforces parking within Washington Park. Citations are issued to vehicles in violation of City Code. If you received a citation, follow the instructions on the back of the citation to pay or appeal. If you believe you received your citation due to a paystation malfunction, you may contact the Parks Bureau by e-mailing them here.
All citations are adjudicated through the Multnomah Circuit Court.
