From the 401

Take Allen Road to Eglintotn.

Or exit on Lawrence and come along Marlee.  Turn into Whitmore, Belgravia, or Livingston, for free on street parking. 

If you’re coming from the east or west, Roselawn / Castlefield are convenient side routes.

To avoid Allen Road take Dufferin but turn into the side streets before Eglinton as there is currently no turning on Eglinton Ave from Dufferin.

Coming from the South, Dufferin Street Oakwood Avenue will both bring you here.


Green P

Green P parking is located at:
+ Eglinton and Alameda: 1531 Eglinton Avenue West | $1/Half Hour

Carpark #667

Use the Green P App to access *free parking* along LRT construction route.

Parking restrictions on local side streets have been relaxed.  Parking on Lanark, Livingston, Alameda, Times and surrounding roads is a lot closer than you think. (It beats hectic shopping mall parking any day!) Coffee Time has it’s own lot and some of the corner businesses will let you pay and park short term.  Just get to know your local shopkeeper.

Please have a look at the parking signs for extended parking on side streets.

Read all traffic signage before parking.
