Beachway Burlington parking fee

If you plan on heading to a popular Burlington park this upcoming long weekend (or any late spring or summer weekend, for that matter), you’ll have to pay to park your vehicle. 

The City of Burlington recently took to social media to remind residents and visitors that paid parking will come into effect at Beachway Park (1100 Lakeshore Rd) on May 20.

Park visitors will have to pay for parking on weekends and holidays from then until Sunday, Sept. 24, between 8 am and 8 pm. Parking costs $2.50 an hour or $20 for the day. 

Beach visitors can pay for parking by scanning the QR code at a park payment sign with their smartphone or downloading the HONK mobile app. Guests can also use a HONK contactless payment station, located along the park’s multi-use trail. 

The HONK app also allows visitors to search for parking before arriving. 

A $0.35 transaction fee will apply. 

According to the City’s website, some visitors–such as Halton residents–are eligible for parking exemptions. Visitors who live in the region (which consists of Burlington, Oakville, Milton and Halton Hills) are allowed up to 10 free days of parking in Beachway lots from May until September. This exemption does not come with a spot guarantee, however. 

Beachway Park, a popular hotspot in the warmer months for cycling, running, rollerblading and swimming, boasts 6.8 acres of park space, two kilometres of lakeside trails, an outdoor pavilion, a playground and a seasonal concession area.
