The long-delayed park fees are in place.

If you have a valid Disabled Parking Permit/Tag, you are not required to pay the fee. You do not need to be parked in a marked handicapped space as long as permit is displayed.
People who enter the park on foot or on bicycle do not need a pass.

Volunteers who complete 100 hours of volunteer service can get a free annual pass.
