Motor Vehicle Permits

In October 2022, the Board of Park Commissioners voted to remove Motor Vehicle Permits (MVP's) as a requirement for both Butler County residents and out of county visitors beginning January 1, 2023. An estimated 1.3 million park visits were made in 2021, and that number continues to climb. MetroParks is committed to making greenspaces more accessible for all, and eliminating MVP's will help more people create memories in the parks!

MetroParks will implement parking fees for attendees of Athletic Complex events held at Voice of America MetroPark and at some external special events beginning in 2023.

Questions or comments regarding MVP's should be directed to MetroParks' Visitor Services team at (513) 867-5835 or email
