Parking in the neighbouring West End Neighbourhood

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 couple of pay parkades within a few short 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 a pay parkade underneath the Safeway store at the corner of Denman Street and Robson Street (enter from Robson Street)  Additionally, there is a pay parkade in the Denman Mall (enter on Nelson St. near Denman St.).  The Denman Mall parkade is only open during the day.  So, we recommend that you use these parkades rather than use street parking in the West End.
