Summer parking in Deep Cove

To keep the streets of Deep Cove safe and enjoyable for everyone this summer — and protect the surrounding trail ecosystem — we are regulating car and tour bus traffic in the village.

Should you visit Deep Cove today?

Deep Cove is a popular destination. Please review the parking and access information on this page before you go to avoid disappointment. 

There is very limited on-street parking in the village, and what few spaces there are are in very high demand. There are several parking lots in the village, but during the summer, they tend to fill up early in the day, and remain full all day.

This makes parking in the village a potentially time consuming and frustrating experience.

For your enjoyment, we recommend using an alternate form of transportation to come to Deep Cove, such as public transit or active transportation, or considering carpooling with friends or family. 

Public transit connections are available from Phibbs Exchange via Dollarton Highway (route 212) and from Burrard Station in Vancouver via Pender Street and Mt Seymour Parkway (route 211), stopping at Phibbs Exchange.

Parking in the village 

If you do need to bring your car, here are your off-street parking options:

  • Panorama Park — The large parking lot on the east side of Panorama Drive is limited to three-hour parking and is strictly enforced.
  • Rockliff Road — Additional parking lots are located on Rockcliff Road between Naughton Avenue (four-hour parking) and Raeburn Street.
  • Seasonal Overflow parking — Available at Cove Cliff Elementary between 8am and 11:30pm from July 1 to July 3 and July 8 through August 27, 2023. These school parking lots offer day parking, but also fill quickly, especially during the weekends. 
  • Myrtle Park — Both Myrtle Park lots are available for parking if the village and overflow lots are full, but these lots also fill quickly in the summer.

Bus access to Deep Cove

Large tour buses are prohibited from stopping or parking anywhere in the village, and are not permitted to stop or park on surrounding neighbourhood streets. Any bus stopping in the village will be subject to a $500 fine.

Is your local school or non-profit group planning to arrive on a bus? You can request a temporary bus access permit that allows you to bring your bus to the village. Apply for your bus permit now.
