Destination Parks Pay Parking

Pay parking is in effect for Lighthouse Park, Whyte Lake/Nelson Canyon Park, and Whytecliff Park as of Monday, February 12, 2024. 

Pay parking in these parks will be in effect year-round, between 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week.

During the initial phase of the Pay Parking program, parking rates will be $3.75 per hour, plus applicable taxes and transaction fees.

Resident pass

Current residents of the District of West Vancouver may apply for an annual parking pass at the cost of $20 per pass, plus applicable taxes and transaction fees, per year. West Vancouver residents must provide proof of current vehicle registration to an address in West Vancouver and applications are subject to verification which takes approximately two business days to process.

Each pass is issued to an individual vehicle/license plate. There are no limits to the number of passes per resident, and each pass will be valid for all West Vancouver parks in the program. These resident passes can be purchased at any time during the year through the Impark website and will be valid for 365 days from the date of approval. Please note that there are no physical passes required or provided by Impark; resident passes are tied to a specific license plate and vehicle registration.

Discussion and Council consideration around pay parking within destination District parks has been taking place for the last 25 years.

At their regular meeting on May 8, 2023, Council directed staff to initiate the initial phase of a pay parking program to include Lighthouse, Nelson Canyon, and Whytecliff parks. Staff will report back on the implementation of the first phase of the pay parking program after the program has been operational for six months. This will provide an opportunity to review and reflect on any learnings from the initial phase implementation period and amend the program accordingly.

Net revenue from this program will be reinvested into the subject parks, and other operational and/or capital costs.

The Destination Parks Pay Parking Program aligns with the 2012 Parks Master Plan, which states as one of its core values:

  • Prudent financial stewardship and management.

Recommendation 4.6.1 in that Plan states the following:

  • Consider potential revenue generation uses in terms of the potential management benefits associated with charging for use, e.g., dive schools fees, more concessions/cafes, picnic shelter booking charge, vending machines, equipment rentals, advertising on park maps.
