That said, the parking is reasonably well organized and automated. So, with the use of a little grey matter to remember your parking stall number and return to your car before your parking meter time expires you shouldn’t spend any additional time or money.

The parking stall numbers are painted onto the pavement or the curb at each parking stall.

Parking along White Rock’s Marine Drive appears to be a major revenue generator for the city and introduces a big city characteristic into an otherwise very natural and peaceful oceanside town setting.

Even with the large white stickers stating “THIS DISPENSER DOES NOT GIVE CHANGE” among all the other information one has to digest to understand the payment process, it is easy to overlook the need for exact change. We contributed $1.25 additionally to the city when we paid $2 for our $.75 parking fee and no change was dispensed.

Of course, the alternative to paying for parking is to risk the probability of receiving a ticket which, if I recall correctly, was $35 the last time I received one a few years back.
