Parking Downtown

There are just under 1,000 parking spaces located within a three block radius of the downtown core.

We are challenging our visitors that are able-bodied to support the downtown by giving yourselves a bit of extra time to park in the municipal lots and walk into the downtown so that people with mobility challenges can take advantage of the on street parking. For more information about parking availability click here.
