Parking Meters


  • Parking meters are in effect 10 am-10 pm daily from May 15-September 15.
  • Head-in parking is required. Vehicles must be parked head in with the front of the vehicle toward the curb or edge of pavement in all angled or perpendicular parking spaces within the City of Rehoboth Beach. (Handicap-accessible vehicles are exempted from the head-in parking requirement.)
  • All parking meters have a 12-hour maximum limit with the exception of 30-minute spaces and at Grove Park.
  • Meter rates are $4/hour citywide. Meters are payable using quarters or credit card or via ParkMobile. Meter payments are nonrefundable.
  • All 30-minute spaces and accessible spaces require payment during parking meter season.
  • When at the pay station, verify that the amount of time and the amount you wish to pay are correct. If you are uncertain, please cancel the transaction and start over. No refunds are issued.

Accessible Parking

  • Vehicles with handicapped permits must pay meter fees or purchase a parking permit.
