  • This is the best parkade in the city. Make sure to check out the roof if it's around sunset.
  • While it's often a busy parkade I love the first hour is free in all city parkades, so often come here. It's close to lots of shops. Great in the evenings if you're coming downtown for dinner/meeting friends!
  • Good place to park downtown. Free after 6 and all day Sundays, and first hour free all the time.
  • Good parkade only 6"6 clearance though so my big truck didn't fit
  • Good lot. Lots of parking. Always super full
