This map serves as a visual guide to parking and non-parking zones in the downtown Elkins area. Users should be aware that while every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this map, actual conditions and regulations on the ground may vary. The information provided is not guaranteed to be up-to-date or comprehensive, and routes or designated areas may change over time.

Parking availability is subject to periodic restrictions, especially during local events. As an example, although parking along Davis Ave. is generally accessible, there may be times, such as during parades or other special events, when it is restricted. Additionally, users are reminded to always exercise due diligence and adhere to all official road signs and instructions when parking. Visual indications on this map should not be seen as overriding any physical signs or guidance found at the parking location itself.

It’s important to note that some parking areas in the downtown region might impose specific time limits, like a 3-hour maximum, while others may be entirely unrestricted. At all times, it’s crucial for users to check and abide by any posted time limitations or conditions. Unauthorized parking in private or designated restricted areas can lead to vehicles being towed, with all associated costs, including those for towing and storage, being the responsibility of the vehicle owner.

In all situations, we advise users to exercise their best judgment and ensure that their parking decisions are in line with local laws and regulations. This map is intended as a guide and not an exhaustive or definitive source on parking regulations in downtown Elkins.
