Annual Motor Vehicle Permit

$10 resident | $14 non-resident

Valid Motor Vehicle Permits are required for every vehicle entering a Great Park of Hamilton County. Otto Armleder Memorial Park & Recreation Complex and Fernbank Park are cooperative ventures with the City of Cincinnati; therefore, a Motor Vehicle Permit is not required.

The cost of an annual Motor Vehicle Permit is $10 for residents of Hamilton County and $14 for all other park visitors. Fees from Motor Vehicle Permits support ongoing conservation e­fforts for the park district’s 17,500 acres of greenspace and are a funding source for providing an enjoyable, safe and clean experience during your visits to Great Parks of Hamilton County.

Motor Vehicle Permits are mailed within three business days from date of purchase.
