Beachway Burlington parking fee

Just in time for the long weekend, you will have to start paying to park along the Beachway in Burlington.

Beginning May 18, you will have to pay to park in the Beachway parking area which includes the overflow lot at Lakeshore Road and Willow Avenue.

You have to pay only on weekends and holidays (Monday, May 20 is Victoria Day). Fees will be charged from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. until the end of September.

“Beachway Park is a popular summer destination with limited parking spaces,” said Kaylan Edgcumbe, Manager of Integrated Mobility for the City of Burlington. “Charging for parking has improved parking and traffic flow since it was introduced in 2021. If you are planning to visit the Beachway, plan ahead and prepare to park in another location if the lots are full. Please make sure you are parked in a legal parking spot. City bylaw officers must ticket and tow those parked illegally to help manage parking and traffic flow. Most importantly, this keeps everyone safe.”

Parking fees can be paid using the HONK mobile app. Visitors do not have to download the app but can scan the QR code on parking lot signage to pay for parking.

Weekend and holiday parking is available for an hourly rate of $2.50 or a daily flat rate of $20. There is a transaction fee of $0.35 for each payment. Dashboard tickets are not needed as every payment is linked to a license plate number.

Halton residents have 10 days of free parking per year at Beachway Park. Residents should wait to fill out the parking exemption form once they’ve arrived at the beach and parked in a legal parking spot. The exemption doesn’t guarantee a spot, but it does give residents parking for the day at no charge.

Illegally parked vehicles will be issued tickets and/or towed. Drivers are reminded not to park illegally, especially on Lakeshore Road shoulders and the grass boulevard over the pipeline: they will be towed.
