A new parking lot for patients and visitors to the Emergency Department at Kelowna General Hospital is now open for use.

The new parking lot is located on Royal Avenue between Long and Pandosy Streets – directly across from the Emergency Department. There are 42 public pay parking spots that are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The hourly rate is $1.50 with a four hour limit.

The new lot provides not only public parking, but adds parking for Interior Health employees as well. The new lot will help to alleviate pressures on the neighbourhood from those parking on neighbourhood streets.

The new parking lot is in addition to existing public parking at KGH as follows:

  • East parkade on Rose Avenue, attached to the Clinical Academic Campus;
  • Surface lot next to the parkade and accessed from Rose Avenue;
  • Surface lot behind the Abbott Building, accessed from Abbott Street; and
  • Surface lot under the lab building (Dr. Walter Anderson Building), accessed from Royal Avenue.
