Parking: The Santa Monica Pier parking deck has reopened on a limited basis. The deck is now available for parking Monday through Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. (last entry for vehicles is at 8 p.m. and all vehicles must exit by 9 p.m.). The deck closure was initially due to the COVID-19 pandemic, when the entire Pier closed for almost three full months, then the City continued with the closure for construction, greatly fortifying the entire Pier Parking Deck.
