All parking within Centennial Park is free and the majority of this parking is also untimed.
There are small areas of parking near the major gates that offer timed parking (a maximum of 3 hours). These parking restrictions were put in place to reduce the number of people who park within Centennial Park and commute to the city, making things fairer for all of our visitors.
Parking availability within Centennial Park may be restricted at certain times of the year due to major events.
