Parking at Albert Park

Parking fees increase January 2018

Parking fees at Albert Park Reserve will increase from 1 January 2018, due to the increased cost of delivering parking services. Changes in fees will be implemented to maintain quality facilities, ensure a healthy environment and encourage greater use of public transport.

The new fees have been set to minimise the impact on park users as much as possible and are consistent with other popular locations nearby such as the St Kilda and Elwood foreshores.

The new parking fees from 1 January 2018 are:

  • Weekday hourly rate: $5.20 per hour (previously $3.50 per hour)
  • Weekdays after 5pm flat rate: $5.20 (previously $2.60)
  • Weekday maximum all day rate: $12.50 per day (previously $10.00 per day)
  • Weekends flat rate fee: $5.20 per day (previously $2.60 per day)

Parking permits will continue to be available for park businesses and members of Albert Park clubs. New permit fees will commence on 1 January 2018:

  • Sports Club Permit – 6 months: 32.90 (previously $25.60)
  • Sports Club Permit – 12 months: $65.90 (previously $51.20)
  • Junior Sports Club Permit – 12 months: $16.30 (previously $12.70)
  • Tenant permit – 3 months: $205.10 (previously $159.50)
  • Tradespersons permit – 7 days: $24.00 (previously $11.70)

The net revenue from parking fees will continue to be reinvested back into Albert Park Reserve services and facilities and the sports and recreation club grant program.

Parks Victoria is working with all affected stakeholders including the local community, park visitors, sports clubs and commercial tenants to monitor the impact of the parking fee increases.
