The machines do not make change. It will print out a pass that must be displayed on the dashboard of your vehicle with the date visible.

Annual Passes allow frequent park visitors to save money and time. If you are a Livermore resident and come once a month or more, it will be worth your while. Out-of-district residents who visit the park twice a month or more will also save money. Seniors (Age 60+) receive a substantial discount. Annual Passes are hang-tags that you can use in multiple vehicles. Passes are prorated for blocks of months, so you get the same great value regardless of when you purchase your pass.
Annual Passes must be visible on the dash or rear-view mirror. Annual passes can be purchased from rangers in the park, at the Robert Livermore Community Center (4444 East Avenue) or you can fill out this form and mail it in.
