Parking in Galveston


Parking fees collected on the Seawall are used to maintain and add amenities, such as landscaping, lighting, and restrooms. Parking fees are collected downtown to ensure that adequate parking is available for people eating, shopping, and visiting downtown.

If you are planning to park on the seawall or downtown, you should download the Pay By Phone app available in Apple, Android, and Blackberry app stores and setup your payment options.

This video explains the process.
