Parking in Coupeville

For off-street parking, just one block 2 short blocks to the iconic Coupeville Wharf and all the “action” there’s a town lot flanking the Community Green and Coupeville Library. From there you’re just a stroll (with a view) away from the historic waterfront’s shops, restaurants, county museum, Wharf and beach. The “Town Lot” also includes bathrooms open during daylight hours and trip to downtown is safe for wheelchairs and walkers. There is no overnight parking at this lot. map

Additional parking is available at the Coupeville Rec Hall parking lot off Coveland at Grace. That lot is 1/4 block from the waterfront but smaller and often fills up quickly. map

When street parking along Front, Alexander, and Coveland are full these two lots give you safe parking and easy access to everything along Coupeville’s historic waterfront.

NOTE: The Coupeville Historic Waterfront’s Park Smart program, for the busiest times in Coupeville, encourages business owners and employees to park off street at 2 designated summer lots, and the town lot in the incumbent weather months.
