Car Parking in Albert Park

Albert Park

Parking fees apply to all car parks and kerbside parking spaces within Albert Park. Time restrictions and ticket requirements are shown on parking signs within the park. All profits raised from parking are put back into Albert Park.

All vehicles in pay-for-parking areas of Albert Park Reserve need to purchase a ticket from one of the pay-and-display ticket machines in the park. To avoid parking fines, tickets must be displayed prominently on the dashboard.
