Hey guys, I'll be going to Winterlude tomorrow and will be driving; does anyone know where I can park without getting ticketed/towed? I find the parking restrictions that the city has put up during the event in some of the areas utterly ridiculous. Thanks in advance!
I think some of the parking spots around Slater, Albert, Metcalfe, and O'Connor are free. It's definitely free way down Slater and Albert around Kent, Bay, and Lyon, but that's a bit of a jaunt. Then again, you can park around here and grab one of the Winterlude shuttles at one of the hotels.
Anyway, if you're parking downtown, just look for the signs to see where you can park for free.
Thanks once again for all the suggestions guys! Went around the streets off the east side of the Ottawa U campus and around Greenfield looking for a spot but to no avail. Ended up parking underground at the Convention Center. A bit pricy ($17), but the convenience made it worthwhile. And had a great time with my work buddies skating on the canal, seeing the ice sculptures, and attending the skating performances and dance party!
