Parking

We are pleased to announce that the City of St. Catharines has joined with us to offer Free Downtown Afternoon Parking from Monday, December 11 until Friday, December 29, starting at 12 noon. There is a limit of 3 free hours to park, shop and dine.
 
The free parking promotion is for all Downtown City parking meters and hourly machined parking lots (no garages), weekdays from 12 noon to 6pm, with a 3 hour limit. If you need more time downtown to shop, dine and explore, the City's parking garages at Ontario Street and Garden Park/Carlisle Street offer a low-cost option for downtown parking.
 
Please be aware that free afternoon parking does not apply to special event parking fees at the Head Street, Race Street, Garden Park and IceDogs Way parking lots during events at the Meridian Centre and the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre.
