Parking changes planned for Breakwater Park area
March 4, 2019 -
The City is planning changes to parking in the area of Breakwater Park after park usage increased significantly last summer following the park's extensive make-over.
"Staff will monitor these changes as we continue to understand the usage at the park and the impact on the neighbouring streets," says Marissa Mascaro, manager, parking services.
The changes, to be presented to city council early this spring, will address the need for short-term parking for those who wish to enjoy Breakwater Park, as well as accessibility needs and neighbourhood concerns. They include:
- Shifting the time-restricted parking on the first block of Beverley Street from the west side of the street to the east side.
- Adding metered parking on the lower part of Collingwood Street.
- Improved signage on Beverley and Collingwood streets.
- Adding two accessible parking spaces on the east side of Beverley Street near King. Visit GetInvolved.CityofKingston.ca to review and comment on the location of these accessible parking spaces.
Breakwater Park reopened for the enjoyment of all residents mid-summer 2018. In December, a pedestrian-activated signal was installed on the east side of Beverley Street at King to improve safety for the increased number of pedestrians approaching the park from the north and west.
