Does anybody know some free parking spots around Foothills Hospital?
FraserB
How long do you need to park for? And when?
bulaian
there's 2 hour zones right across the street for free... use google street view to see them all

There is a spot just south of the glenmore dam , where the bike path is, where you can park and just walk a short distance on the bike path across glenmore tr to the south.

I need 8 hours, the 2 hour zones are not sufficient. i will look into the one by the dam. In the meanwhile anything closer? looks like CPA got the area on lockdown, can't even park in the alleys
nutella
staff don't even get a discount on parking let alone free parking =/

if you want as close as possible, try to find someone you know that will lend you their staff parking pass

How many days do you need? I live right across 14th and can probably lend you my parking pass, its probably a 5-10 min walk to the emergency doors.

I will be there for a while, rotating between that and PLC. I do have a parking pass with them but I want to cancel it if I can make somewhere else to park. $100 a month to park at heritage park and shuttle bus it over FTL :facepalm:

Thanks Fraser :thumbsup:


Anyone, know of any special spots over by Foothills? Wouldn't mind paying someone if they live within walking distance, rather then pay the hospital to park offsite

Good.

If anyone could park anywhere, people in the area would CONSTANLY have cars in front of their houses.

PM scope951 for parking near the foothills. There are spots like 5< minutes walk. Just across 29th st.

anyone else?

Park in Eagle Ridge and take a short stroll through? Not sure if residents would like that but I dont think time is an issue parking on streets in that neighborhood. Plus they're all rich so they have mile long driveways to park their 5+ sports cars

Sure do, thanks FraserB :thumbsup:

ttt, someone must live around here or know someone who would be willing to rent out their backyard parking pad, behind their garage, street parking

Bump still looking, had to go on a waitlist at the hospital. Apparently there no spots even though half the parking lots are half empty.

Anyone know the status on free parking near Rockyview? :D
ricosuave
^ see my post earlier in the thread
sdiep
Is this the area to park? How do I drive into that area though, because from google maps, it doesn't look like it connects?
ricosuave
^ no

on 14th st northbound, when you come up to glenmore trail west or eastbound, there is a lane that will allow you to go back to 14th street southbound. take it. the turn off for the dam road is right there.

hope that helps
