Delray Beach Meter Parking on A1A-New Hours and Parking Permits!
When you’re in Florida, whether for a week, for the season or as a permanent resident, sooner or later you’ll find yourself at Delray ‘s beautiful beaches. The activity along A1A and Atlantic Avenue varies from morning walkers, groups of cyclers headingnorth, families arriving for a day at the beach, dogs and their owners out for a walk, diners heading to any one of our ocean front restaurants and kayakers, divers, and wind-surfers ready to hit the water.
We have plenty of parking spaces along A1A but don’t forget to bring some coins to feed the Delray Beach Parking Meters. And when you get there keep an eye out for Dennis.
Dennis has been with the City of Delray Beach for almost 20 years and has been caring for the meters for almost 3. Delray recently changed the hours when the parking meters would be in effect and thanks to Dennis many beach goers were made aware of the changes.
Recently we were about to place our quarters in the meter for a morning walk along the beach. Dennis saw us and stopped to tell us that the time had changed and that in fact we early-birders wouldn’t have to pay until 9:30 now. Metered parking used to start at 8 A.M.
Dennis is there many mornings and he always has a smile on his face. I think he is aware that he IS the face of the city to those he meets while servicing the parking meters. His pleasant attitude helps to send the message that Delray Beach cares about its visitors.
