Parking lot closure in Centre in the Park

The temporary public parking lot ─ situated just northwest of Festival Lane, across from the Community Centre and the Strathcona County Library in Centre in the Park ─ will close on July 6, 2015.

This lot, and another adjacent to it, has been sold and construction of new residential and commercial buildings is underway.

Parking in the Centre in the Park “district” will continue to be managed through an integrated system of on-street, surface lots and underground parking.

The public is encouraged to use the Community Centre parkade offering two hours’ parking at no charge; parkade users must register their vehicle’s licence plate. The parkade is clean, well-lit, secure, monitored and heated in winter. As well, a new, additional library book return bin has been placed on P1 in the parkade.

Effective July 6, some parking area time limits will change in the district to help create parking stall turnover. Festival Way and LOT D by County Hall will be posted with a two-hour parking time limit, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday–Friday.

The public's cooperation to follow posted time limits and patience during the construction in the area is appreciated.

Centre in the Park is a mixed-use development of residential, commercial, cultural, recreational and municipal services. As part of the new building development, an underground parkade is being built to provide more public parking for the area. It is expected to be opened in late 2017.
