Let’s get started!
UNDERSTANDING THE PARKING LOT LAYOUT
Churchill Square’s parking lot consists of two main areas: paid parking and non-paid parking. Paid parking is located in the front part of the lot, near Terrace on the Square, and along the perimeter closest to the businesses. These areas are equipped with pay stations. On the other hand, non-paid parking is designated as the staff parking area. If you find a free parking stall in this section, feel free to park there.
USING THE paybyphone APP
To simplify the payment process and save you time, the city has introduced an easy-to-use parking app called paybyphone. We recommend downloading this app on your phone before your next visit to Churchill Square. You can find it on the Apple App Store for iOS users or on the Google Play Store for Android users.
