Parking Enforcement


The Town of Colonial Beach has installed new parking meters in the downtown area of the town.  The new Flowbird meters work nearly identical to the previous meters but make parking easier and more efficient for visitors. As with the previous meters, guests can pay at the Pay Station with cash or credit card, using their license plate number. The new meters also allow drivers to pay via an app on their mobile devices. Download the Flowbird app for IOS or Android using the App Store on your device, on Flowbird's website, or using the QR code on signage in the parking area (beginning May 22.) View Kiosk locations (PDF).
