Seasonal Paid Parking

The Town of Estes Park will be introducing seasonal paid parking on May 28, 2021. The 2021 paid parking season will continue through Oct. 17, 2021 at a rate of $2 per hour from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily (Monday through Sunday). Paid parking will be implemented in 30 percent of the Town's overall parking supply, and 67 percent of the downtown parking supply. The remaining 70 percent of all public parking (and 33 percent of downtown parking) remain free. Town staff is currently working on a new webpage that will include a resource library of printable step-by-step instructions on how to pay, video tutorials, and much more.
