The City of Gretna has installed parking meters near the Courthouse and Gretna City Hall. Anyone parking at a meter is now required to pay the meter fee. There is an app (Parkmobile) that can help make your parking experience more convenient. The app allows you to pay to park by phone. The app allows you to pay for the meters only, it does not include the parking lot.
