Toronto Parking Tips

Jump to last reply

Finding a decent place to park your car in Downtown Toronto at a reasonable rate can be a daunting task. You will see signs such as $6.00 but the fine print says for the first 30 minutes. Parking at Skydome is $20. I went to one lot today and they wanted $10 from 5-6 pm and $15 for 6 pm to 6am. I drove away.

The best deal on parking is $6.00 a day in the parkade at Market Square at Church and Yonge. If you are staying at the Victoria Hotel, it is only a three block walk.

The other reasonable place to park is at Greenpark on Yorkville between Bayview and Yonge. I can take the subway from here to Eaton Centre. It costs $5 on Saturday and evenings to park here.

A third parking tip for tourists to Toronto is that you will find there are no parking meters and think that parking is free! A sure way to attract a $60 ticket on their windshield even though they were only gone 5 minutes.

Ticket meters are on green kiosks on the sidewalk. You can pay by credit card coins. Place the receipt on your dashboard.

Does anyone know where there are cheaper places to park in downtown Toronto?
