Shoppers driving into South Orange Village Center on Monday, December 5 were greeted with a happy surprise: Free Parking for the Holidays.
Yes, ’tis the season to park for free in South Orange Village. As in years past, the South Orange Parking Authority is giving away free parking through December. All metered and municipal lot park is free from Monday, December 5 through Tuesday, December 27. Paid parking begins again on Wednesday, December 28.
But shoppers and visitors still need to remember to be nice (not naughty) when they park.
Mark Hartwyk, director of the Parking Authority, reminds customers that the parking time limits still apply. For example, there is:
- Free 30 minute parking on Sloan St
- Free 1 hour parking on South Orange Avenue
- Free 2 hour parking on Taylor Place lot
If you exceed the time limit, you will be ticketed. After all, the Village needs to ensure that all shoppers can access their favorites stores in the Village for the holiday season.
