Well, at Yonge/Sheppard, at the National Sports plaza, I think it's free then.

There's a Green P also next to the Subway station, it doesn't cost THAT much.
:mad: :lol:

Try beecroft after 9pm (street parking)

or, if you are willing to walk, there's a 24 hours dominion @ church & yonge with underground parking (hint hint wink wink)
(entrance is 1 block east of yonge)

right at yonge and sheppard is a parking lot that opens their gates at 11pm, what i usually do is park there, do whatever i need to do until 11, then go back and leave without having to pay

it's funny to see people tha doesn't know about this, they leave at like 10:59, and pay like 5 bucks or whateer, then the gate opens for them, and stays open

free at 11? i know that the street parking just north of sheppard in the side streets usually free AFTER 8.. just make sure if ur parking before 8, to put a ticket on your dash, the parking enforcement DO check, my friend got a $20 ticket but he had a ticket on his window, why did he still get it? the ticket was not visible. you can also tryparking on pontz and avondale too pleanty of parking there as well. if ur going to any restraunt in the sheppard mall, ie: mirage cafe, then with a minimum $10 order, they will validate your parking card for the underground lot, which is just accessible by the next intersection on the north side of yonge

Don't park at the dominion. There's a security guard that walks around and checks the cars. You will get a ticket.

Or keep an old Dominion bag stuffed with decoy groceries prominently displayed on your car seat.

Please do NOT suggest people park on Avondale area....This is a residential area, and if you are not visiting the townhouse or condo complexes...It is very rude to park on those streets...

As a resident of that area, nothing bothers me more than seeing people leave their cars on Avondale, and then walk up to YOnge street...Those streets are not for you to park!!..I see people blocking the loading docks....causing more traffic in the area.

BTW - there is a 3 hour limit on Avondale, and the parking enforcements are there every day and night to give tickets....

sorry I didnt know, my friend I work with lives over there and I usually park infront of his house and have never had any problems, possibly because if there were any parking inforcement officers, they may have seen me going in/out of my friends house and left my car alone. Anyways, I take back what I said.

Instead of blocks, why don't you tell us where exactly you're parking? Everyone has different definitions of what constitutes a "block".

Not that I don't wanna help. I live around there too so I can help you; you just have to be a bit more exact in your location.
