There are two main parking lots to park at when you visit the Golden Gate Bridge. Please note that parking is limited, so other transportation is recommended.
Southeast Side Visitor Parking Lot
This parking area has a range of visitor services, including a café, gift center, gardens and an array of scenic vistas. Parking is metered ($0.25 per 15 minutes) with 37 spaces, including 26 general spaces, six bus stalls, and three accessible spaces for visitors with disabilities that have disabled placards. The lot is closed on weekends and holidays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. On weekends and holidays only, additional parking is available in a nearby satellite lot on the southwest side at a rate of $5 per day.
Northeast Side Parking Lot
Free parking (with a four-hour limit) and restrooms are the only amenities at this location. The lot is closed on weekends and holidays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Northwest Side Parking Lot
Free parking is available at the Marin Headlands lot on the west side of the bridge (with a four-hour limit). There are no amenities here but you can walk under the bridge to the northeast lot.
Over, under or across — no matter what the approach, the Golden Gate Bridge always enthralls.
