If you’re thinking of visiting Mississauga’s waterfront this spring and summer to enjoy its parks, trails and amenities, you need to know that fines for parking and stopping violations will increase to $100 beginning May 1, 2022.
The fines were increased in an effort to reduce traffic congestion and illegal parking. The waterfront areas become busy during the spring and summer months and draw thousands of residents and visitors. This increase in traffic impacts neighbourhood safety and access for emergency service vehicles.
Fines will be increased to $100 from May 1 to September 30 for all parking and stopping violations. The increased fines apply on local roads and in City parks and municipal parking lots south of Lakeshore Road, from the city’s east border to Meadow Wood Rd. Tickets for parking violations occurring between 2 and 6 a.m. are exempt from the increased $100 fines and will remain at the regular fine amounts.
In an effort to provide more parking in the area, the City has secured parking agreements with Port Credit Secondary School and Brian J. Fleming Adult Education Centre. Parking at these locations is free during evenings and weekends throughout the school year and all summer long.
The City is committed to keeping Mississauga’s waterfront neighbourhoods safe, attractive, and accessible for residents and visitors to enjoy. Those visiting Mississauga’s waterfront must park in permitted areas only within parks or adjacent neighbourhoods. If the parking lot is full, please consider exploring one of the City’s other 500 parks. Those visiting the area are also encouraged to consider walking, cycling or taking transit.
