Keep an eye out for “No Parking on Grass” signs.
Some spots look very tempting but Police are very active about ticketing cars parked where they shouldn’t be. At Cherie Down Park it is a defiant No, No.
You may want to consider buying a Parking Pass from the city. Permits allow the vehicle to be parked at any metered parking space without having to put money in the meter. Local residents can purchase one for $10 Non-residents pay $60. More Info Here.
