Parking in Phillipsburg

We plan to head to Phillipsburg for a day during our trip next month. Last time we went we parked at least 2 miles away from the center. Is there a place to park that is closer to Front St? Thanks in advance.

Yes, There is free parking along Pondfill Road (Walter Nisbet Road) - a short three block walk to Front Street.

Also meter parking next to the police station - two block walk to Front Street - very limited parking in other places.

See the link for a map of the area - - -

The key to finding a parking spot is early arrival.

It's almost impossible to get parking on the pondfill anymore. And if you're not in town by 8:30 -9 am the lot by the police station will be full. We always go to the pay lot at Bobby's Marina behind Greenhouse. Unless there's an "event" in town, we always can find a place. When we go to town, it's usually not until afternoon. $1 per hour.

We always rent a car, but the parking problem in town made us look for another option. Aqua Mania has a Thursday boat trip from the Simpson Bay Marina into Phillipsburg and back. It lets you off in the middle of town near the Court House. I think it costs $12 but they supply cold drinks in both directions. We will take the boat rather than fight with the traffic and lack of parking.

As othetrs have said there are some Free Car Parks on W Nisbet Road but as mentioned unless you get there early you will find the surfaced and marked bay areas pretty much full.

There seems to be plenty of space on the "unmade" areas though - we never had a problem a few weeks back.

If you're talking about the unfinished sand road ON the salt pond - technically it is a no parking zone and you can be towed.

I guess I probably am but you can see in the Google pics there are a good few cars parked on the unmade area and it just seems to be an "Overflow" from the first car park on the right going West after the Police Station.

It looks to have gone beyond the "odd stray car" :-)
