The Park District owns and manages 3 commuter parking fields (Canterbury Road, North Station Plaza and Shoreward Drive) for Park District residents. As a courtesy to residents the Park District issues one parking window decal per resident household at no cost. If needed, a second decal may be purchased for $12. In order to obtain a parking window decal a Park District resident must have a valid park card and present his/her vehicle's Department of Motor Vehicles registration showing his/her name and Park District address.
If you are not a resident or do not have a window decal on your car and you are parking in our commuter parking lots, you are in violation of our parking rules and risk receiving a costly parking ticket. We have increased our code enforcement staff to ensure that only Park District residents have complete access to parking in our commuter lots.
Parking Fees & Display Tickets
In order to park in the lots Monday through Friday, between the hours of 5 a.m. and 5 p.m. parking fees apply. You are required to purchase and clearly display on your rear-view mirror a daily ($5), monthly ($75) or annual ($785) ticket.
As an added benefit to Park District residents, however, residents may park in any of the Park District commuter parking lots free on Saturday and Sunday with only the parking window decal. As in the past, parking is never permitted between the hours of 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. Parking is always on a first-come, first-served basis.
The parking window decals and daily, monthly and annual parking tickets can be obtained or purchased at Great Neck House located at:
14 Arrandale Avenue
Great Neck, NY 11024
Dunkin' Donuts across from the train station also sells our parking tickets:
35 North Station Plaza
Great Neck, NY 11021

Future of Commuter Parking
The Park District operates 3 commuter parking lots near the Long Island Railroad Station. The current demand often exceeds the capacity of these lots. Expansion of the Long Island Railroad to Grand Central Station as well as additional housing under construction within the Park District will increase this demand. The District is examining potential ways to increase the number of parking spaces.
The Commissioners, with the help of all Great Neck residents and Town and Village officials, hope to find various alternatives commuters might use to get to and from the train. Read the full report (PDF).
