Zone 2 Parking Information

During the winter semester Zone 2 will have decreased capacity due to the construction of the Canada Games Park. We are encouraging customers of Zone 2 to consider alternative modes of transportation which include St.Catharines Transit, carpooling or multi-use paths along St. David’s. We understand that this is not an option for all of our customers, including those who commute.

Zone 2 overflow parking is directed to the Catholic Diocese of St. Catharines at 3400 Merrittville Highway which is a 600-metre walk from the main entrance to the Roy and Lois Cairns Health and Bioscience Research Complex.
