Parking permits are distributed by The Groton Long Point Association and are required for usage of parking areas, used to control levels of access following major storms, and provide temporary parking for special events. Parking permits can be obtained by visiting the GLPA Office.  Proof of residency and car registration are required with a $5 fee for renters.  Temporary permits are distributed through the GLP Police Department.
