New Parking Meters in Town of Colonial Beach

Pay at the Pay Station by license plate or via mobile app


The Town of Colonial Beach has installed new parking meters in the downtown area of the town. The new Flowbird meters work nearly identical to the previous meters, but make parking easier and more efficient for visitors.


As with the previous meters, guests can pay at the Pay Station with cash or credit card, using their license plate number. The new meters also allow drivers to pay via an app on their mobile devices. Download the Flowbird app for IOS or Android using the App Store on your device, on Flowbird’s website at https://flowbirdapp.com/app/ or using the QR code on signage in the parking area (beginning May 22.)


Parking rates and times remain the same: $2/hour from 12 am.-11:59 pm, or $20 per day, seven days a week. Free, 15-minute parking spaces are also available at select locations for people picking up food or making a quick stop.
