Overnight holiday parking made easy

Downtown Oakville and Kerr Village

November 28 to January 4.

The Town of Oakville is pleased to introduce overnight parking during the 2020 holiday season in Downtown Oakville and Kerr Village.

Now until January 4, 2021, you can park at town-owned parking lots from 6 p.m. to 9 a.m. free of charge, with the exception of the 300 Church Street Parkade. Please follow all current Public Health guidelines when dining out or socializing in Oakville's establishments.

Need more time?

Use the HONKmobile app to pay for any extra time you need past 9 a.m. Payment can be made from the comfort of your home any time before 9 a.m. Simply note the “zone number” and lot where your vehicle is parked and secure your parking. This will allow for a little more time to pick up your car.

Paid parking and time limits

Paid parking is available in all municipal parking lots, metered spaces and pay-by-plate machines in Downtown Oakville, Kerr Village and Bronte Village.

Parking is free after 6 p.m. and on Sundays and holidays in all three business improvement areas. In Downtown Oakville, parking is also free on Saturdays for the remainder of the year, during the Lakeshore Road reconstruction project.

Shop local - use the app

To encourage contactless, cashless pay, the town is offering first-time users of the HONK mobile parking app up to $5 toward their parking, using the promo code OAK2020 in all three business improvement areas, through to the end of the year. In Downtown Oakville, the first hour of each visit is free when using the promo code DOWNTOWN on the HONK app. Residents will also notice the town has established temporary free curb-side pick up spaces for quick stops in all three shopping areas.
