Municipal Car Parks

The City of Hamilton has 63 municipal car parks and two parking structures for a total of 4,681 off-street parking spaces. All City-owned parking lots are labeled with the green "P". Not all public parking lots are owned by the City of Hamilton.

The off-street municipal car parks are unattended. These lots are first-come, first-served.

  • The two parking structures are operated by cashier and pay at the machine. 
  • Each parking lot has either parking meters or pay and display machines.
  • Coins are the predominant method of payment.
