Parking & Transportation

This summer, plan to spend your Mondays shopping, dining, and exploring downtown Ferndale—without worrying about parking. 

The City of Ferndale and Downtown Development Authority are pleased to announce Dog Days of Summer Free Parking Mondays, July 6 through Labor Day. Residents and visitors will enjoy totally free parking in all City lots every Monday through the end of summer. 

Dog Days of Summer Free Parking Mondays are open to all, and it’s easy to take part. Just park in any City lot (street/meter parking is not included in the promotion) and enter promotion code 1918 at your nearest parking payment kiosk. You’ll receive a free all-day parking session. 

All parking payment kiosks in City lots have been outfitted with stickers to instruct users about how to use the promotion code. Parking ambassadors will also be on hand in several of the lots to inform people about the promotion and assist them with using the kiosks.

There are two electric vehicle charging stations located in downtown Ferndale parking lots.  The City offers  a Power Dashboard that shows the locations and real time availability of these stations as well as actual usage data of the system.  

The City prohibits non-electric vehicles from parking in spaces dedicated for charging electric vehicles.  The penalty for doing so is a $35 prohibited parking citation.
