Downtown is easily accessible from all areas of the city. Bike, walk, drive or take public transit to explore the district.
Parking in the District
The City of Belleville Parking Services manages approximately 1,000 parking spaces located within a three block radius of the downtown core. These spaces include approximately 100 on-street spaces on Front Street, with the balance of the spaces spread between 11 parking lots and streets in the downtown area.
Parking Services also manages parking enforcement activity in the city through the administration of the City of Belleville, through by-law(s) which detail restrictions on where and when parking is permitted on all city streets.
DECEMBER 2019 UPDATE: Feed The Meter campaign – Parking is free downtown starting December 1st, but please Feed The Meter in support of Food for Learning! (Maximum time limits and other restrictions still in effect).
On Street Parking – Downtown
1 Hour Free Parking: Parking is permitted for one hour on Front Street free of charge. The by-law allows for one free hour of parking in a 24 hour period, after which the vehicle must be moved. Employees or visitors who return to the downtown frequently throughout the day should park in an area designated for long term parking.
2 Hour Maximum Metered Parking
On-street metered parking is available throughout the downtown area at a cost of $1.00 an hour. The maximum length of stay at any of the metered spaces is 2 hours which is in place to ensure that more people have an opportunity to use convenient, on-street parking spaces. If you require a longer stay, please park your vehicle in a space designated for that purpose.
Off-Street Parking – Lots
2 hours and up to Full Day – Parking
There are a number of lots that can be used for quick stops or up to full day parking. The rate in those lots is $1.00 an hour with a maximum stay of 9 hours. (Please see map below)
Weekends and Holiday Parking
Weekends and holiday parking downtown is free. However, there is no overnight parking in any of the lots.
