Walnut Creek 2011 Holiday Parking Guide

Tis’ the season! Holiday shopping is underway, and so is the hunt for that perfect parking spot!
This season, the easiest way to get around and accomplish your holiday shopping is to park your car, and hop on the free trolley (you can find the trolley route on the map below) After parking, make sure you are aware of the posted rules/signs to avoid parking citations (or worse!)
This year, Walnut Creek City Council has added a few new “Meter-free holidays”. You can leave your quarters at home on these days, as meters will not be enforced.
Meter-free holidays now include:

  • New Years’ Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Fourth of July
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas
  • President’s Day
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Day
  • Veterans Day
  • Columbus Day

These changes only apply to street meters, library parking lot, and other parking lots owned by the City. It does not include public parking garages, private lots, private garages, red zones, handicapped zones, and “permit parking” areas.
