Which would be weird and impressive at the same

I work Downtown, where should I park?

We encourage all those that work in Downtown Kelowna to use either one of the parkades or the closest parking lot to your business. Consult our map to find the closest one to you!

It is not suggested to park on the street in front of your business as they are only a 2 hour limit and feeding the meter is a ticketable offence and may result in getting your car towed.
