Park Admission Fee: $3 per vehicle for 1-2 people; $5 per vehicle for 3-8 people; and $1 for additional person/walk-ins/motorcycles/bikes.

Due to the popularity of Kelly Park, it is normal to service a high volume of visitors during the summer months and on holidays. You may also experience traffic congestion due to the popularity of the park. Frequently, the park is filled to capacity by mid-morning, and unfortunately guests must be turned away at the entry. In order to provide a quality recreational experience while preserving the natural beauty of historic Kelly Park, a daily maximum visitation has been determined: 280 vehicles will be allowed entry each morning, and an additional 50 vehicles are allowed in after 1:00 p.m. with afternoon parking pass. These 330 vehicles equate to an average of 1,350 visitors each day. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for working with us to ensure a sustainably safe and pleasant experience for you and all of our guests.
