Illegal parking at Riverside Park boat launch is a growing problem


The Chelan County PUD says illegal parking at its Wenatchee boat launch is a growing problem.

The parking spaces at Riverside Park behind Pybus Public Market are for boat trailers, not passenger vehicles.

Signs clearly say so, the PUD points out.

In just a few hours one day this summer, Wenatchee police ticketed more than 20 vehicles.

And that’s not cheap. Those tickets carry a $30 fine.

And if it’s not paid within two weeks, it climbs to $50.

There are parking spaces nearby for trail and park users, the PUD says.
