The Parking Division maintains forty-seven (47) multi-space parking meters throughout the City of Deerfield Beach. The meters are strategically placed covering 573 off-street parking spaces and 336 on-street parking spaces. Additionally, there are 497 non-metered spaces at The Cove Shopping Complex and an additional 202 non-metered parking spaces at the Palm Plaza Shopping Center.

Metered Pay-by-Plate

The City of Deerfield Beach has implemented a Pay-by-Plate parking system. This system uses License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology. Simply enter your vehicle license plate number at one of the multi-space parking meters strategically located throughout the City. A Parking Enforcement Specialist with the Broward County Sheriff's Office, will scan the license plate using LPR technology to confirm payment of the patron's parking session.


The meters accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and coins. When paying with coins the hour must be completed. Certain meters do accept mixed payments (coins + credit card).

Parkmobile Mobile App

The City of Deerfield Beach has partnered with ParkMobile, a smartphone app that provides a touchless option for parking payments.

The app is available for download on iPhone and Android.

How To Use parkmobile

  1. Download the app on iPhone or Android and complete the registration process, including your plate number, credit card information, and alerts.
  2. Pay for parking using the correct zone. You can find your zone by using the street signs behind the parking meter, entering the zone number in the search bar, or panning the map.

  3. Once you paid for parking, you will be able to see a countdown on your screen and receive a reminder (create in settings) when your time is about to expire. With a simple click, you can extend your time.
  4. If you originally paid for parking at a metered pay-by-plate machine, and it's about to expire, you can start a new session by using the ParkMobile mobile app. Parking Enforcement Specialists will use your license plate number to verify that you have paid for parking.
