Special July 4 Parking Fees Announced for Michigan City's Washington Park

MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. — The Michigan City Parks & Recreation Department announced on Friday that there will be special event parking fees in effect for the upcoming Independence Day celebrations on Thursday, July 4.

This change aims to manage the increased influx of visitors expected at Washington Park.

On July 4, cars and motorcycles without a Washington Park parking sticker will be subject to a parking fee of $40.

Larger vehicles such as motorhomes, trucks with trailers, or buses, without the requisite parking sticker, will be charged a fee of $80.

This special pricing is in place to ensure orderly and efficient use of the parking facilities during one of the busiest days of the year for the park.

To avoid these fees, visitors can obtain a Washington Park parking sticker. The Parks & Recreation Department has emphasized the importance of bringing the correct documentation when applying for this sticker.

Applicants must present their current vehicle registration card. Note that temporary, 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper copies of the registration will not be accepted.

For residents living outside the civil city limits but owning property within the city, additional documentation is required.

These individuals must provide their current vehicle registration card along with a utility bill or tax bill that shows the address of the property they own.

According to the source, it’s crucial that the name on the vehicle registration matches the name on the utility or tax bill to qualify for the parking sticker.

The deadline to secure a Washington Park parking sticker is Wednesday, July 3, by 6 p.m. Visitors are encouraged to obtain their stickers well in advance to avoid the special event fees and ensure a smoother experience on July 4.

Normal parking fees will resume the day after Independence Day, on Friday, July 5.
