The Town of Conception Bay South has entered into a lease agreement with local property owners to provide additional parking for the new community park. The fully-accessible, ocean-front park is currently under construction and anticipated to open late this summer, provided no construction delays occur due to COVID-19.
“The lease agreement with Doug and Derek Greenslade will provide approximately 90 spaces designated for park users when it opens later this year. The park is an exciting addition to our community and ensuring adequate parking is available to residents for this multi-purpose venue is a priority of this Council,” said Mayor Darrin Bent.
The parking located at 196-202 Conception Bay Highway, will be rented until January 1, 2026, for $2,000 per month, at which time the agreement may be renewed.
The park’s adjacent parking lot can be accessed off Bishops Road and has 15 parking spaces. The leased lot, which is a three- to four-minute walk to the park via sidewalk, means that more than 100 spaces have been made available for parking. The lease also allows the Town to designate more accessible parking. The Town continues to explore optimal parking solutions to ensure safety for families and visitors accessing the park.
The lease agreement was approved by Council at the public meeting on December 21, 2021 and a copy can be accessed on the Town’s website.
