Free daytime parking in most spots on Granville Island is limited to three hours between 7:00 am and 7:00 pm. Read the signs carefully: some spots are for one hour only, and many have recently changed to 20 minutes. If you park your car in one spot for three hours and then move it to another spot on Granville Island, you risk being ticketed. Parking is free and unlimited in most spots (including the pay parking garages and lots) each evening from 7:00 pm until 7:00 am.
The EasyPark lot just east of the entrance to Granville Island, at 990 Lamey’s Mill Road, offers all-day parking for $9, or $1.50 per hour. There is also plenty of parking on the north side of False Creek. Consider leaving your car there and coming across on False Creek Ferries or the Aquabus.
The most important thing to remember is to give yourself time—at least an extra 15 minutes to find a spot—if you plan to park on Granville Island.
Ferries travel from various locations along the north and south shores of False Creek to Granville Island at frequent intervals. Call or check the web for schedule information.
