Municipal Parking Lots and Garages

The town is responsible for the commercial parking operations in Downtown Oakville and the Kerr Village business districts.

There are many municipal parking areas in these commercial districts. There are areas to park that offer from 2 hours to all day parking. Parking overnight is not available.

Limits and rates

Hours of operation and the maximum length of allowed parking time varies with the location of the parking lot or space. Each location has an hourly rate posted. Paid Parking in the downtown area allows for payment by major credit card or coins (some exceptions exist).

For more information visit the Parking limits and rates page.

Service disruptions

From time to time there is maintenance that needs to be done that may impact our customers. Please refer to the Service Disruptions page for further information on service disruptions around Oakville.
