Penalty notice/Parking ticket at Chingucousy Wellness center

Did anyone hear of getting Parking ticket/Penalty notice at the Chingucousy wellness center at the Brampton? An out of town friend parked their car there. When they returned found the ticket on the windshield from the City of Brampton! I have never heard of that.

It could be private property. Any address on the ticket?

Were they there to use the centre facilities? It’s not at all uncommon for sites to enforce their parking facility policies to ensure that their patrons have parking available.

Do not know. It is long time that I went there. When called the staff said it is free and it should be as it is a recreation center.

It’s free if you’re using the recreation centre. Were your guests using the recreation centre, or parking there for an extended period of time?

They could always try to fight it. Ask for leniency.

That's a legit ticket. OP never verified if out of town friends actually used the wellness center, or if they parked there and skipped to the civic hospital behind/beside the wellness center or went to a plaza nearby...

From Brampton 93-93 S57 (12):

No person shall park or leave any motor vehicle in or on any part of a municipal parking lot where, by means of one (1) or more signs, it is indicated that such parking or leaving is not authorized


Sounds like where or how they park d was prohibited by a sign. Since it was issued at 9:09 am, maybe they were parked there overnight when the sign said not allowed?

Either way, there must be signs posted that will tell you more specifically what they did wrong.

Did they go to the hospital next door? If they did that and someone saw them then thats why a ticket was given.

No confirmation from OP yet on this, (I'm leaning towards them going to the hospital), but I know this area and they have a lot of people trying to do this, so they don't have to pay for hospital parking. Also they do have security cameras and parking enforcement coming every often to verify everything.

This used to happen a LOT at Erin Mills Town Centre when people would visit Credit Valley Hospital. Now security patrols regularly and doles out tickets.
