Extended Free Parking in Downtown and Le Village in DecemberNovember 30, 2022
Cornwall Ontario – Residents and visitors looking to shop and dine local will be able to park free earlier starting in December.
Cornwall City Council recently approved a request to offer free parking downtown and in Le Village from 4-6 p.m. each week day in December. Parking is regularly free after 6 p.m., and free on Saturday and Sunday.
“When entering in the time on a meter or the Pay-by-Plate machine, simply pay until 4 p.m.,” said Charles Bray, Chief Building Official. “If you arrive after 4 p.m., you do not need to pay for parking.”
The City of Cornwall provides on-street parking as well as parking lots in the Downtown and Le Village Business Districts. Depending on where you park, you will have access to a pay-by-plate machine or a parking meter. You can also use the HotSpot app to park anywhere in the City. Parking costs $1.50 per hour, with a maximum stay of 12 hours.
Each year the City receives the request for a seasonal break on parking times to promote shopping local.
Regular parking regulations will resume on January 1st.
