The Flowbird app offers:

  • Contactless payment – park users no longer need to handle cash or interact with high-touch surfaces
  • Find my car – for those who forgot where they parked
  • Touch ID

To download the mobile app, visit https://flowbirdapp.com/app/, then:

  • Create an account
  • Choose the vehicle license plate
  • Select your location on the map
  • Confirm your payment

“One hundred percent of the parking fees collected go back to parks,” said Parks and Lands Division Manager Galina Burley. “Paying before you go with the Flowbird mobile app can also help expedite the parking process.”

Clark County Parks charges daily parking fees year-round at four regional parks: Frenchman’s Bar, Lewisville, Salmon Creek (Klineline Pond), and Vancouver Lake. Please note that the Flowbird parking app charges a $0.35 cent service fee per transaction.

Daily parking fees at these four parks are:

  • $2 for motorcycles
  • $3 for vehicles
  • $6 for vehicles with trailers
  • $8 for buses or motor homes

These are parking fees, not entrance fees. There is no charge for park users who walk or bicycle into any of the four parks.

Park users may also be able to pay in person if seasonal parking fee booth attendants are available and can still use the pay stations located at each park’s entry. Pay stations accept cash, coin, VISA, and MasterCard. Annual passes can still be purchased for $30, which provides access to all four regional parks through Dec. 31. Annual passes can be purchased online using either Visa or MasterCard.
