Gillson Park Lakefront Parking Decals

Parking decals are available at all Wilmette Park District facilities.

Wilmette Park District Lakefront Parking decals are color-coded to designate Resident and Non-Resident users. Resident Lakefront Parking decals cost $28 and can only be used on vehicles displaying a Village of Wilmette sticker. Residents with leased or company vehicles should inquire about proper procedures when purchasing a Lakefront Parking decal. Non-resident Lakefront Parking decals cost $165.

Note: Lakefront Parking decals must be permanently affixed to the lower driver's side front windshield. Tickets will be issued by the Wilmette Police Department for those who fail to display the decal properly.
