Reserved Weekend Parking in Effect at Lowville Park Starting May 20

Lowville Park Parking Reservation

*Please see below a news release issued by the City of Burlington.

Burlington, Ont. — May 12, 2023 — The City of Burlington is reminding visitors to Lowville Park to reserve their free parking spot for park visits. Advanced reservations can be made online using Park Pass starting May 20 until Oct. 9, 2023. Reservations are needed on weekends and holidays between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. and are free.

Visitors may book one spot per day since there are a limited number of parking spots available. This will help allow others the chance to enjoy the park. Reservations are available in three-hour time slots.

“We are continuing to have visitors reserve their parking spot again this summer on weekends and holidays. This has helped us manage parking in the popular park for the past few summers. It is free and visitors can reserve their 3-hour time slot before they visit the park. We will keep the gates in the up position when reservations aren’t needed on weekdays so visitors can enjoy the park.

Visitors to the area should keep in mind that there are very few parking spaces available on Lowville Park Road and to be respectful to local businesses and residents.” — Craig Kummer, Director of Transportation, City of Burlington

Here’s how it works:

  • One vehicle per reservation.
  • Those walking or biking into the park don’t need a reservation.
  • Visits are three hours long and include in and out privileges.
  • Visitors will get an access code to enter the park at the automated entrance gates. Stop on the line so that the camera can take a clear scan of your license plate or use the bar code or numeric code on the keypad. This will open the gate. The gates will be left in the up/open position during weekdays when advanced reservations are not required.
  • Vehicles must park in a designated parking spot.
    All other areas are strictly enforced tow away zones. Violators will be tagged and towed.

Please be aware:

  • Vehicles parked in the lot exceeding the 3-hour limit will be ticketed.
  • Reservations should be done before leaving for the park. There are no Parking Ambassadors this year to help with reservations on-site.
  • Those who do not have a reservation can scan the QR code on the park signage to try to make one if any spots are available for reservations. Drivers are asked to move away from the entrance to complete their reservation and be mindful not to block the entrance gates or traffic.
  • Vehicles with damaged, bent or flaking license plates can use the bar code or numeric code on their reservation for entry.
  • Changes/cancellations can be made up to 48 hours before the reserved arrival time; the date, name, license plate and number of people may be changed.
  • Late grace period: The City understands unexpected things happen. It’s ok to be a few minutes late.

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.


A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
