Metered parking postponed at Claremont Hills Wilderness Park
Claremont officials have postponed enforcement of paid parking at the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park. Hikers will not be required to pay for parking in the designated lots until Monday, April 15.
The city deferred the original enforcement date, April 1, because of a glitch with the parking meters, according to a news release. Parking will be free until the needed repairs are made.
Once enforcement begins, hikers may purchase a daily parking pass from the meters for $3. Annual passes can also be purchased at City Hall or the Hughes Center for $75. Claremont residents may claim up to 2 free passes, only for use in the south lot at Mills Avenue and Mt. Baldy Road, by presenting identification and proof of residency,
Though paid parking has been delayed, par rangers will still be enforcing park hours and restricted parking zones. Violators may be subject to a $50 fine.
