Parking/Getting Here

Churchill Square has multiple parkades close by, including the Canada Place Parking. The parkade entrance is located on 102 Avenue between 97 Street and 99 Street. However, due to the LRT line, you must turn north onto 99 Street (towards the Citadel Theatre) from Jasper Avenue. Drive towards the end of the Citadel Theatre, then turn right and the parkade entrance will be on the right side of the street.

Please note that there are two parkades near Canada Place: the Canada Place Parkade and the City Hall Parkade. The Canada Place Parkade (9700 Jasper Avenue), whose entrance is on 97 Street, is open until 1 AM. The City Hall Parkade (1 Sir Winston Churchill Square), whose entrance is located on 99 Street, closes at 10 PM. These parkades are not connected, and are accessed differently.

If you park in the City Hall Parkade (1 Sir Winston Churchill Square), use the southeast door to access your vehicle between 6 PM and 10 PM.

If you park in the Canada Place Parkade (9700 Jasper Avenue) in the evening, you will need to go to the main doors of Canada Place to buzz security in order to gain admittance to the parkade after your concert. The main doors are found on the East side of the building.
