Public parking near CNE / Ontario Place

Anyone know a public parking space near the area?

Something around Bathurst or even Dufferin.

I plan arriving there tomorrow around 9am....

Thanks.

When the doorbell rings, it's just a request. You are not a dog, it is not a command, only a request. You are not in church, you are at home. No guilt.

I don't mind walking 3km or even taking the TTC...

I was thinking of parking spots further north near Bathurst and Queen for instance............

Good luck too? :razz:

Seriously, do yourself a favour and leave your car at home. Take the TTC or a taxi.

So, what are you trying to do exactly? Go to the CNE?

Even by yourself if you pay $10 for parking and $5 for ttc, it is quickly getting close to just paying for the CNE parking...

This is my first time going there by car. Will there be spots available around 9am?

Best bet is to park in liberty village. You can park on Atlantic for free on Sundays and Holidays. You have to pay Mon to Sat between 8 to 6 pm. There is also pay parking for $4 at the end of Atlantic. Around the village there is more parking. How do you get to the CNE from liberty village? Simple take the Go transit tunnel that starts from dead end of Atlantic.

I sometimes park on Front and Spadina just by the new development on Front. I pay $10
however, there should be lots of parking by molson amphitheatre and the price is probably the same
you can also try to find a free parking spot in high park

It might be worth it to pay the $25 and drive right in.

Under normal circumstances, I've used the Coronation park metered street parking on Remebrance Dr @ $5 for 24 hrs. I repeat, under normal circumstances.

When the CNE is on, all bets are off.

We have always parked off of Dufferin, just below King. On the east side (I think Liberty St) you can find parking for 15 and for 10 for the day. Then it is a short 5 min walk to the Dufferin entrance.

I took the TTC... and glad I did! It's just not worth it I think. Way, way too busy and expensive to park there. If you really need to drive downtown I'd even consider parking away from there and take like the Bathurst streetcar right into exhibition... avoid the massive hassle!

How is 10 to 15 dollars, for the day, too expensive to park in downtown TO? Traffic was not too bad either.
