Commuter Parking Fields
The park district owns and manages three commuter parking fields for Park District residents. There is a daily fee. Parking stickers, issued at Great Neck House, are required. The lots are located at Canterbury Road, North Station Plaza and Shoreward Drive.
Dunkin' Donuts is across from the train station and they sell our parking tickets for us. Their address is 35 North Station Plaza
New Parking Window Decals and Rules
In response to residents’ requests, new for 2009, the Great Neck Park District has redesigned its parking permits. The new permit is a window decal, which is to be placed on the lower right-hand corner of the driver’s side rear window, rather than on the rear bumper as in the past. This will allow the permit to be removed without causing damage to your vehicle.
Beginning January 1, 2009, you must have a parking window decal on your vehicle at all times in order to park in any of the District’s three commuter parking lots. This will assure that only Park District residents will be using these parking lots.
The Park District will be issuing one parking window decal per resident household at no cost. If needed, a second permit may be purchased for $12. In order to obtain a parking window decal, a resident must have a valid park card and present his/her vehicle’s DMV registration, showing his/her name and Park District address.
In order to park in the lots Monday through Friday, between the hours of 5 a.m. and 5 p.m. parking fees apply. You are still required to purchase and clearly display on your rearview mirror a daily ($4.00), monthly ($68.00) or annual ($748) ticket.
As an added benefit to Park District residents, however, residents may park in any of the Park District commuter parking lots free on Saturday and Sunday with only the parking window decal. As in the past, parking is never permitted between the hours of 3 a.m. and 5 a.m.! Parking is always on a first-come, first-served basis.
The new parking window decals and daily, monthly and annual parking tickets can be obtained or purchased at Great Neck House, 14 Arrandale Avenue. Call 482-0355 for further information.
FUTURE OF COMMUTER PARKING
The Park District operates three (3) commuter parking lots near the Long Island Railroad Station. The current demand often exceeds the capacity of these lots. Expansion of the Long Island Railroad to Grand Central Station as well as additional housing under construction within the Park District will increase this demand. The District is examining potential ways to increase the number of parking spaces.
The Commissioners, with the help of all Great Neck residents and Town and Village officials hope to find various alternatives which commuters might use to get to and from the train.
