Downtown Parking

There are on-street and surface lot parking options for Downtown visitors. On-street parking throughout Downtown San Marcos is limited to two hours in certain zones and four hours in certain zones, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  For more information about the time limit zones, please see the map below.

Some Downtown surface lots allow monthly passes to park in the lot all month long. For information about monthly parking, please contact the individual lot provider.

To better manage Downtown parking, the City of San Marcos uses license plate recognition technology to help parking enforcement officers. Please read all signage before leaving your vehicle to avoid getting a ticket or having your vehicle towed.

Please note there are immediate tow zones located in some Downton locations. Please obey all parking and towing signs.
