Grove Park; Rehoboth Beach, DE

Please arrive early as Rehoboth traffic is heavy on summer weekend's mornings. Free parking race morning until 10:00 am. Meters take effect starting at 10:00.  Your best bet is to go by Grove Park, proceed around the traffic circle, and then find a parking space on Rehoboth Avenue.
