Parking at Wrightsville Beach Park and Town Hall
March 1st - October 31st
On February 14, 2019, the Wrightsville Beach Board of Aldermen approved changes to parking in the Wrightsville Beach Municipal Complex including Wrightsville Beach Park, Town Hall, Museum, and Visitor Center. Parking at the Municipal Complex will require a pay station receipt in order to park in these areas from March 1st—October 31st, 9:00 a.m. through 7:00 p.m. daily at the rate of $3.00 per hour. The first two hours of parking are free with a valid parking receipt which must be displayed on the vehicle dash. You may obtain a parking receipt from one of the pay stations that are located by the softball field, park restroom/tennis court area, across from the main entrance of Town Hall, and the Museum and Visitor Center (see map below). If you select more than two hours at the pay station, you will not be charged for the first two hours. If you select two hours or less, but find you will be staying longer, you may return to the pay station and obtain a new parking receipt with another two free hours. Wrightsville Beach Residents may display their residential hang tag in lieu of a parking receipt.
If you hold a reservation for facility use in Wrightsville Beach Park, you are entitled to use the Event Parking Lot as indicated on the map below. This area is not a pay-to-park area and a parking receipt is not required in the vehicle dash. If you choose to park in a paid parking lot, you will be required to pay for parking as described above, even with a facility reservation.
