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.
Parking at the Sunny Hill site is free and is on a first come, first served basis. Please observe posted signs for reserved or restricted parking spaces. The parking gates are closed from 8 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. Street parking is available, but please respect our neighbours and park on the Sunny Hill (east) side of the street.
Pay parking is in effect 24 hours a day and all prices are subject to change.
Free parking assistance is available to make your visit to BC Children’s easier. Simply drop your car to the parking assistant at the main entrance to the hospital (near Emergency) and your car will be parked for you. Regular hourly parking charges apply. The parking assistant is available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday to Friday (closed on statutory holidays).
See a list of RV parks and facilities located reasonably close to our Oak Street site.
The lots are patrolled to ensure designated areas are used properly. This helps ensure turnover in short-term parking areas to accommodate patient families. If you are a patient/patient family member and you receive a ticket for parking in a Patient's Only stall, call our Parking Supervisor at (604) 875-2086 or mail the ticket, with an explanation to C&W Parking, Rm. AB100, 4500 Oak Street, Vancouver, BC, V6H 3N1. We will cancel tickets issued by mistake.
While on site, if you require assistance or an escort to your car during evening or early morning hours, please call Protection Services (604) 875-2999.Updated on : March 1, 2013
