Public parking


Parking enforcement hours are from 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM, with the exception of the beach parking lots at the Manhattan Beach Pier, which are enforced 24-hours a day.

The City runs twelve parking lots.  These lot locations can be viewed using the online Public Parking Lots Interactive Tour. Beyond lots, there are over 300 City street meters in the Downtown Manhattan Beach business district. These parking spaces serve to regulate the flow of transitory and business traffic.

Parking Rates:

  • Beach Parking Lots- $1.50/hour
  • City Parking Lots- $0.75/hour
  • Street Parking- $1.25/hour

There are 12 public parking lots in the Downtown area.  Lot 9 is a two level underground parking structure with 200 2-hour metered spaces and 260 8-hour metered spaces. Lot 8 is long-term free parking and Lot 7 has 10-hour meters.
