Parking on the Oak Street site campus can be challenging, especially during our busiest mid-week clinic days and during cold and flu season.
Allow plenty of extra time for locating a spot and for walking across the large campus to your appointment.
Parking and Traffic Flow Interruptions:
Ring Road Interruption Saturday, May 18
On Saturday May 18, contractors will be excavating a portion of the campus ring road across from the entrance to the BC Children's Hospital and BC Women's Hospital Building underground parkade. This will affect traffic entering the site from the Oak Street entrance. Personnel will be directing traffic near excavation site. The underground parkade and parking gates will remain open. However, there will be minor disruption to the traffic flow on the ring road.
Parking Gate near West 28 Avenue Entrance closed; use Oak St. or Heather St. entrances
The parking gate near West 28 Avenue is closed and will remain closed until September. The site entrance will remain open but access to the north parking lot will now be from the Heather Street Entrance or the Oak Street Entrance. Please watch for new traffic patterns and follow the signs. Be aware that there may be flag persons directing traffic.
Underground Parkade painting project
The underground parkade is being painted. Painting will take place on weekday evenings and weekends and sections of the parkade will be barricaded in rotation, to maintain access for patients, families, visitors and staff.
Construction onsite: We have entered the next phase of our redevelopment project. As of February 2013 parking on site is even more limited. Please be aware that this can affect traffic flow.
