Digital Parking Permits

The city has a new software system where you can purchase a digital permit to park in our permit-designated municipal parking lots.

The City of Woodstock provides convenient and accessible parking for those doing business or visiting our city. There are 10 municipal parking lots with 552 parking space, 351 on-street parking, as well as, 19 accessible spaces around our downtown core. Most of our on-street parking is limited to five hours unless otherwise posted. Our downtown core has a limit of two-hour parking unless otherwise posted and during the month of December only is extended to three hour parking. Residents and visitors are required to adhere to all by-laws and posted signs.
