As a destination for visitors from the mainland, the City of Cocoa Beach shares its beaches with millions of visitors each year. Visitors contribute to our vibrant local economy. Over 40 beachfront parking areas are provided and maintained, in addition to a number of beachfront parks. The City recoups part of the cost of providing public services (including beach clean-up, maintenance and replacement of dune crossovers) and responding to public safety calls (police and emergency rescue) through parking revenues. Most beach-end parking areas are metered.
Rates of Parking Meters: The cost of parking or standing a vehicle in a parking metered space, located in the parking zone, is one dollar ($1.50) per hour, except for the zone including First Street South to Fifteen Street South which is two dollars ($2.00). Metered Parking is enforced twenty four (24) hours a day, including Sundays and Holidays.
Rates for Parks: Shepard and Fischer Parks, which in addition to parking also provide restrooms and showers, charge a daily parking fee. The parking fees for Shepard Park shall be ten dollars ($10) per day, or for any part of a day. The parking fees for Sidney Fischer Park shall be seven dollars ($7) per day or any part of the day. The fees described apply only for the day in which the fee is paid. Vehicles displaying one or more of the following shall be allowed to park at no charge: a valid disabled parking permit, a valid disabled license plate, a valid Florida Toll Exemption permit, specialized equipment such as ramps, lifts, or hand and foot controls for use by a person who has a disability. These parks close at dusk and all vehicles must leave by that time.

Parking Permits for Locals
Cocoa Beach residents and property owners can purchase an annual parking permit for $10 per vehicle
to be permanently affixed to the designated vehicle. The permit is good for the entire calendar year. Permits allow the vehicle to be parked at any metered parking space without the necessity to put money in the meter. Non-Cocoa Beach Residents can purchase the annual permit for $60.

Permits can be purchased at City Hall at the cashier's window in the lobby during normal city business hours. You must bring proof of your residency (a current utility bill, tax bill or other such current proof) and the current vehicle registration.
