Seasonal Visitor Parking Permits

The cost for a seasonal visitor parking permit is $35.00 for each vehicle, $8.00 for each motorcycle and $10.00 for each trailer. A Seasonal Visitor Permit pays for itself if you plan to visit the Live Oak beaches on five or more enforcement days during the season. Seasonal visitor permits are non‐transferable and valid anywhere in the Live Oak Parking zone. When purchasing a seasonal permit, be sure to provide a completed permit application for each vehicle.

Visitors to the Live Oak Parking Zone who do not wish to purchase a seasonal permit are eligible for non‐transferable permits for $8.00 valid anywhere in the Live Oak Parking zone. On Saturdays, Sundays, and Holidays during the season, visitors may purchase permits from the Live Oak Parking Trailer, located at the corner of 9th Avenue and East Cliff Drive, after 10:00 a.m. and before 5:00 p.m. You may also purchase permits from Live Oak Parking Attendants patrolling the zone. These permits are non‐transferable.

NOTE: State Parks permits and Santa Cruz Harbor permits are NOT valid in the Live Oak Parking Zone.
