    lets talk about the parking situation at dockweiler.....you can pay to park which is around $8 which gets you closer to the beach/water....or you can park along the street. WARNING: at 10pm dockweiler closes and the police are pretty on it when it comes to ticketing street parking.....tow trucks are also out in full force....sometimes we linger past 10pm so its up to you which parking option you choose.......thanks james for the question!!! :)
