Two downtown Brampton municipal parking lots to reopen on May 28, 2020

Beginning Thursday, May 28th, 2020 the George Street North surface parking facility, 20 George Street North and Nelson Square Parking Facility, 9 Diplock Lane, are reopening for public use. Parking will remain complimentary at this time.   Due to the increase in traffic in the downtown core with businesses beginning to reopen, the lots are being opened to ensure the current demand for parking in the downtown meets the supply in order to avoid illegal parking that may pose a health and safety risk to motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.
The reopening parking is in support of business and is not intended for long term use.  Due to COVID -19, continue physical distancing practices where possible when using the garage or parking lot. Please wear masks, especially when physical distancing practices cannot be met.
