The parking lot at 151 Charles Street West, Kitchener, is limited and is a shared visitor lot for all tenants in the Tannery building. It is for short term use only, up to two hours. For alternative parking lot info, check out this map to find out how to get downtown and where to park. Or, skip the need to park altogether. Use the GRT EasyGo trip planner to find your best route on the ION light rail or bus services, which conveniently make regular, nearby stops.

We have an awesome community. And we like to show it off.
