The City of Kingston has announced there will be new time-of-day restrictions implemented on some Inner Harbour streets beginning September 1st.
When the restrictions go into effect, on-street parking will not be allowed weekdays from 10am to 11am and from 2pm to 3pm. The City reports this will help balance the long-term and short-term parking demands for the area.
A permit will not be required if you can park according to these time-of-use restrictions in the area bordered by:
- Queen, Division and Raglan above Sydenham Street
- Bay, Sydenham and Raglan above Montreal Street
- Bay, James and Wellington below Montreal Street
There will be a limited number of on-street parking permits for commuters offered for the Inner Harbour Neighbourhood (Area C on the map below- click to enlarge) for $83.25 a month.
Area residents will be offered on-street permits for $25 a month – $12 a month for residents who do not have on-site parking.

“This is a high-demand area for parking and this change is about managing that demand in a way that balances the needs of area residents, visitors to Rideaucrest Home, Providence Manor and commuters,” said manager parking operations, Kim Leonard, in a City release. “This area is well-served by Kingston Transit on a route that has a Park & Ride.”
Leonard added that this type of implementation in the other high-demand residential areas of Kingston has been working well, including in Williamsville and areas south of downtown to just west of Queen’s University.
