County to continue enforcing no-parking rules in emergency areas outside West Point Treatment Plant. Cars parked illegally will be towed at owner's expense.

prohibited parking areas near beachIllegally parked vehicles in the emergency access areas adjacent to the beach area will be towed at the owner's expense.

To ensure emergency vehicles can access West Point Treatment Plant (West Point), King County will continue to enforce no-parking zones outside the plant. Cars parked in areas reserved for emergency vehicles and in other no-parking areas may be towed at the owner’s expense.

Illegally parked cars create a safety issue for the public and plant staff. King County installed more no-parking signs outside the plant in 2015, and increased towing enforcement in nearby emergency turnaround area and walkways along the beach. Since then, King County Staff have made over 100 calls to the towing company to remove illegally parked vehicles.

King County will continue to tow illegally parked vehicles to create more consistent and safe access for emergency vehicles.

The City of Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation enforces parking at the designated permitted parking areas at the beach. To obtain a permit to park in this area, please visit: or call  206-386-4236.

For more information about the towing at West Point, contact Bibiana Ocheke-Ameh at 206-477-5604, or via feedback form.

The Discovery Park beach area has been clearly marked to show "no parking" zones.
