Where to park in New Plymouth CBD

There are a variety of parking options in New Plymouth's CBD, from on-street to off-street and leased parking spaces.

The parking meters have an in-built 10 minute courtesy period for you to arrange your payment for parking. If you’re going to be less than 10 minutes then by all means duck in and out free of charge – just be sure to return before the 10 minutes is up! There is no grace period for time restricted spaces (e.g. P60 and P10 spaces).

The easy-to-use PayMyPark app lets you pay for parking via your smartphone. You can extend your parking time remotely, receive an alert when your paid parking is about to expire, or use the start/stop function and pay for only the parking time you use. 

Council-managed parking areas are available seven days a week, 24 hours a day (unless otherwise stated below) and are free after 5pm and on Sundays and public holidays. 

Time restrictions (e.g. P60 and P10 parks) apply between 8am and 6pm Monday to Saturday unless otherwise stated on the sign.

Motorbike parks are free.
