Pay parking now in effect at three popular West Vancouver parks

As of Monday, you’ll need to pay to park in several popular West Vancouver parks.

The district’s council voted last spring to approve a pay parking program at Lighthouse ParkWhytecliff Park and Nelson Canyon Park.

The new rate is $3.75 per hour, however West Vancouver residents can apply for a $20 annual parking pass.

City staff will monitor the program and report back to council after six months with an update on how it is working.

The parks were chosen because they are popular regional destinations with standalone parking lots and some potential for unintended parking spillover that affects neighbourhood residents, according to a staff report to council.

The district has estimated the program will generate about $250,000 per year in revenue.

West Vancouver is also exploring the possibility of expanding the pay parking program to other parks, including Ambleside, John Lawson and Dundarave.
