Public Parking Locations in Plymouth
Unlimited Free Parking: You can park for free for as long as you like in the Jenny Pond parking lot (Spring Lane) located off Summer Street and at the Water Street free lots located at 234-236 Water Street near Nelson Park. These lots are located at the periphery of the core downtown/waterfront areas and are shown in green on the map below.
2-hour Free Parking: There are numerous curbside spaces along Court Street (Route 3A), Main Street, Main Street Extension, Market Street, Sandwich Street and Depot Square where you can also park for free but for only up to 2 hours. [Note: free parking up to 4 hours is allowed on Summer Street only]. Because they are immediately adjacent to downtown retail shops and restaurants, these parking spaces are fully occupied during most of the day and the time limit for these spaces is strictly enforced. If you expect to stay for longer than 2 hours, you should consider the 4-hour parking meters or 10-hour lots. The locations of the free and 2-hour time limit parking spaces are shown in green on the map below.
4-hour Paid On-Street Metered Parking: Most of the curbside parking spaces in the downtown and especially on the waterfront have parking meters or pay stations that require you to pay during the paid parking season but allow you to park for up to a maximum of 4-hours. Several large surface lots on the waterfront – Water Lot 2, Water Lot 2B, and Water Lot 3– also have 4-hour time limits. The streets in the downtown and on the waterfront in Plymouth where the 4-hour paid parking spaces are located are shown in red on the map below.
If you are a Plymouth resident who visits the downtown/waterfront area to eat or shop on a regular basis – or an employee of an area business who needs parking – your best option may be to purchase a Plymouth parking permit. This will save you money and allow you to come and go as many times as you like throughout the year. See the Permit Parking section of this website for more information.
