The Town of Drumheller (TOD) is going to have $2 paid parking for tourists starting this spring.
From Wednesday, May 1, 2024, to Thursday, October 31, 2024, TOD Council approved that there will be paid parking on town-owned lots, and it will be enforced daily from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
The locations included in the paid parking program are the Badlands Community Facility, World’s Largest Dinosaur, Riverside Drive E street parking, 1 Street E parking lot, 2 Avenue W parking lot, corner of 2 Street W and Riverside parking lot, as well as the Hoodoos and Suspension Bridge parking lots.
"The paid parking program is a way that the Town of Drumheller can recover some of the costs to Drumheller taxpayers that are associated with increasing tourism in the Valley,” says TOD Councillor Tom Zariski. “A good example of this is the renovations at the Swinging Bridge. The visitors who want to experience the bridge will be charged for parking at this popular tourist destination, and the money will go to Town expenses associated with the recent renovations.”
The costs to tourists will be $2.00/hr in parking lots, $2.50/hr for street parking and $20.00/day.
It will be free to park for residents or people employed in the Valley who register on the Hotspot app for a maximum of four vehicles per household.
