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.
