In this article, you will get all the information regarding Weekend paid parking is back at Jax Beach
JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Florida. – Paid parking returns to Jacksonville Beach Friday night. From Friday evening to Sunday evening, it will cost you to park in the city car parks. People we spoke to in Jacksonville Beach had mixed feelings about the return of paid parking.
Some people said they don’t mind using these kiosks because they say things like this happen in big cities. While others, like some staff at an Irish bar, said they didn’t like it because it meant staff would have to pay to park while at work.
On Friday, some people went to the beach to relax. “I’m going to make time to go to the beach,” said Joanne McCall, who is visiting her son.
Others were there for the holidays. “We’re going to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day,” Tori Bryant said.
Jacksonville Beach Police Department Commander Thom Bingham told News4JAX that the paid parking season continues through October 29.

Wendy lives in Jacksonville Beach and told us she wanted more parking spaces. “It took me an hour to find a parking spot this morning,” Wendy said.
News4JAX spoke to people at the beach about paid parking, and we heard mixed reactions.
Resident Tori Bryant said: “If you have a public beach, I think you should have free parking.”
Resident Drew Bryant said, “I think paid parking is a good way to generate revenue to help maintain the area here.”
Visitor Jordan Mann said, “I don’t have the money for parking.”
Commander Bingham said more paid parking spaces will be available next weekend on 2nd Avenue North and 6th Avenue North.
Other parking spots that are the same as last year are the pier parking lot, the town parking lot behind the Ritz, the one to the east, and the parking lot next to Sneakers.
Commander Bingham told us that if you live within the city limits and your vehicle is registered to an address in Jacksonville Beach, you don’t have to pay. And if you have already registered your vehicle before, you don’t have to do it again.
