Parking in the VMC

Visitors now have a new place to park! Paid short-term (3 hour maximum) on-street parking is available on both sides of Apple Mill Road, Buttermill Avenue, Bent Tree Drive, New Park Place and East side of Maple Smith Way. The City of Vaughan is running VMC on-street parking as a pilot project. If this method of parking is beneficial for visitors to the VMC, permanent installation as well as additional parking locations will be considered.

All about on-street parking


The new on-street parking (highlighted in turquoise in the map below) is offered for three hours maximum and is designed for those visiting the VMC. Overnight parking between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. is not permitted.

Cost, payments and enforcement

Parking is $1.25 per 20-minute interval or $3.75 per hour for up to three hours, maximum. The first 20-minute interval is free on Buttermill Avenue to help those using the YMCA and public library.

Payment for on-street parking is easy and is available through a ‘Parkedin’ mobile App [download App for Apple] [download App for Android]. Parking payments can also be made through a QR code, cash, coins and credit cards at parking meters.

The City enforces on-street parking. Parking without a valid permit or failure to pay will result in a $60 fine. If you received a ticket, visit the City’s By-law and Compliance, Licensing and Permit Services’ Parking Enforcement page for options.


Commuters using public transit must continue to use commuter parking lots at the TTC Subway Stations at Highway 407 and Pioneer Village or Temporary Parking Lots – northeast of Millway Avenue/Apple Mill Road, southeast of Millway Avenue/Apple Mill Road and south of New Park Place – which are offered for all-day use and are paid parking lots managed by private companies.
