In an effort to effectively and efficiently manage the parking at Island Beach and Horseneck parking lots, the Parking Services Department in conjunction with the Department of Public Works, is in the process of re-organization of both parking lots.
The re-organization will result in a total net increase of “G” permit spaces therefore; we anticipate releasing additional “G” Permits to residents from the waiting list. The “G” permit is exclusive to Greenwich Residents only for Island Beach and Horseneck parking lots.
Island Beach Parking lot has two types of users: “G” Permit Holders and $5 Daily Fee Users. The East side of the lot, closest to the train station, is now reserved for Permit Holders Only. The entrance into the lot has PERMITS marked on the ground in white followed by white spaces with no space numbers on the ground.
TheWest side of the lot, closest to the Island Beach Ferry, is now reserved for Daily Fee Users. The entrance into the lot has DAILY FEE marked on the ground followed by yellow spaces with assigned numbers on the ground. The cost to park in the yellow fee space is $5 for the entire day. Daily fee users are also encouraged to pay via smart phone with the ParkMobile app found in the iTunes Store (iPhone) or in Google Play (Android phones).
Users must sign up for the app and input Parking Zone number 2495 for the Island Beach lot. Please keep in mind there is a minimal convenience fee to use the app.
The second phase of the re-organization will occur during the first week November, weather permitting. It will include converting the entire Horseneck Lot from mixed use of Permits and Daily Fees to an exclusively “G” permit lot. We will have signs up notifying vehicle owners of the changes and allow for a transition period.
We understand this is a big change and thank everyone for their continued patience and cooperation.
