NORWALK, Conn. -- Paying for parking is easier and less expensive for guests of the The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk, thanks to a discounted advance online option now available with the Norwalk Parking Authority’s Maritime Garage. 

Aquarium guests purchasing their tickets in advance online now can enjoy the additional option of prepaying online for their parking in the Maritime Garage as well. There is a seven-level municipal parking garage across the street from the Aquarium’s main entrance. In addition to the convenience, paying online will save guests 20 percent off the parking rate, while also ensuring a parking space inside the garage during busy periods, such as summer and holiday weekends. 

Guests prepaying for parking in the garage should print the barcoded parking pass or send it to their smart phone. When arriving at the garage, scan the barcode at the entry gate and again later at the exit gate. 

“This is an excellent new option for our guests that makes their visit easier and more economical,” said Aquarium President Dr. Brian Davis.

Parking Authority Chairman Dick Brescia noted “This is just the latest advancement by the Parking Authority to make an Aquarium visit easier for guests.” 

In November, a parking pay station was installed inside the Aquarium for guests parked in the Maritime Garage. Until then, parkers’ only options were to pay inside the garage lobby or at the exit gates. The pay station remains available in the Aquarium, near the Gift Shop, for guests who do not prepay for garage parking.

“Drivers in South Norwalk should know that they can pay for parking in more ways than ever, including paying with their smart phone through the ParkMobile app,” Brescia said. “And they can locate open spaces around the city using our Parker app.”
