Season Passes


Season Passes are $60 (cash or check), and are issued in the form of a sticker that must be affixed to your vehicle at the time of purchase. These passes allow a vehicle’s occupants to enter LLELA throughout the year without charge. Passes also allow entry to Lake Park and Tower Bay. Normally, LLELA admission is $5 per vehicle per entry.

Passes are not transferrable, and are valid for one calendar year (Jan. 1-Dec. 31). To purchase a Season Pass, drive to LELLA in the vehicle to which you intend to affix the Season Pass and bring cash or a check to the Gatehouse. We are unable to accept credit cards. The entrance to LLELA is at the corner of Jones St. and Kealy Ave (201 E. Jones St.).

Gatehouse hours are the same as LLELA hours:

7 a.m. - 5 p.m. November 1-February 28
7 a.m. - 7 p.m. March 1-October 31
