The West End neighbourhood runs along the east side of Stanley Park. There are a very few 2 hour free parking zones in this neighbourhood but as of June 2017 the city is converting these to paid parking. We recommend that you don't use them because they are only for a short period of time and you WILL get a ticket if you overstay. Also, there is a parking shortage for the resident's visitors already so please don't add to it.
There is metered parking along Beach Ave and Denman Street. This is very expensive and time-limited so you are better off parking in a pay parkade.
There are a number of pay parkades within a few blocks of Stanley Park and English Bay that not many people are aware of. There is a pay parkade at the West End Community Centre (enter on Haro Street near Denman St.). There are also pay parkades underneath the 2 Safeway stores (Robson St., Davie St.) both near Denman St. Additionally, there is a pay parkade in the Denman Mall (entrance on Nelson St. near Denman St.). So, we recommend that you use these parkades rather than use street parking.
