  1. Holiday Weekend Parking Policy at Town Beaches
  • July 4th Weekend:  On Friday, June 30th, Beach Parking Passes will only be sold at the Madison Chamber of Commerce Building until 12 noon.  No passes will be sold again until Wednesday, July 5th. Please make sure to have your parking pass prior to June 30th if you want to visit the Town beaches during the holiday weekend. Residents will be able to purchase online and show your receipt at the check point.
  • Purchase of a beach sticker or a daily parking pass does not guarantee parking availability.  Once a parking lot is filled, all cars will be turned away regardless of a pass so please plan accordingly. Visitors and residents can request a refund for a daily parking pass if it is unused.  
  • Parking at Lowry Field over the holiday weekend will require a beach sticker or daily parking pass. Lowry will be staffed from 8:30 a.m. until 9:30 p.m. on Friday, July 1st, and from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.
