Community Centre Parkade

The underground Community Centre Parkade offers public parking.

The parkade is clean, well-lit, secure, monitored and heated in winter.

Register your licence once you park - First two hours parking will be no charge in the parkade.

To take advantage of the two-hour, no-charge public parking (and to avoid a parking ticket), once you’ve parked your vehicle in the parkade, you must register your licence plate number at the parking machine, even if you are parking for two hours or less.

If you plan to stay for more than two hours, you can purchase the additional parking time at the paid parking rates that apply.

Using the parking machine

  1. Know your vehicle’s licence plate number
  2. Go to parking machine
  3. Enter licence plate
  4. Follow machine instruction prompts
    • First two hours will indicate no charge 
    • Pay by credit card OR exact bills/coins
  5. Take receipt (no need to place display on your dashboard)
  6. You can also go back to one of the parking machines (located at P1 elevators and on Community Centre main floor by the Agora) if you need to purchase more time.
