The orange-colored block-shaped highlighting on the Long Branch beach map shows parking available for the beach. Parking is on-street, at ground-level lots, or in garages, all equipped with state-of-the-art pay stations. On-street parking spaces are mostly pay in summer and free during the off-season. Also available is residential area parking at no cost on streets just west of Ocean Blvd along the entire length of beach. When parking, observe signs and do not park too close to corners to avoid a summons for a parking violation. New Jersey State Statutes prohibit motor vehicle parking within 25 feet of a crosswalk or side line of a street or intersecting highway, within 50 feet of a stop sign, or blocking a driveway (NJ Code Title 39:4-138).
