For summer 2020, the Borough of Belmar has implemented pay-by-app parking for the east side Ocean Avenue and the Belmar Marina area on Route 35. The kiosks previously used to accept payment for parking have been replaced with a new mobile application called ParkMobile. This is the same app used to pay for parking in Asbury Park, Jersey City, New York City, and Philadelphia.
The ParkMobile app allows for contact-less payment via your smartphone or tablet. The Belmar beachfront has two ParkMobile parking zones: Zone 58101 and Zone 58102.
Zone 58101: East side of Ocean Avenue (nearest the boardwalk) to North Boulevard and 14th Avenue.
Parking Rates for Zone 58101: $1.00/hour between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. daily; $2.00/hour between 7:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. daily.
Zone 58102: East side of Ocean Avenue (nearest the boardwalk), from 14th Avenue to the bridge.
Parking Rates for Zone 58102: $1.00/hour between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. daily.
In addition, the ParkMobile app is in use for parking at the Marina Grille and certain sections of the Belmar Marina entrance west of 10th Avenue and State Highway 35. This area is designated as Zone 6 (58106). Paid parking in Zone 6 is in effect daily from 4:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m., and the price is $2.00/hour.
ParkMobile has a six-hour maximum time limit. After six hours, you must make a new payment through the app.
The app can be downloaded on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, or visit the ParkMobile website. For those who don’t use smartphones or tablets, you can contact the parking app by phone at 1-877-727-5304.
There is no charge to park in designated handicapped parking spots with a valid state-issued placard.
