The Park Board is modifying plans to introduce peak season pay parking at Spanish Banks beaches in consideration of the extensive public feedback received.

After reviewing the feedback from the public, Staff have modified plans in the following ways:

Pay parking period shortened by 10 weeks
New seasonal parking begins May long weekend and ends on Labor Day. Delays implementation of pay parking by 6 weeks and shortens peak season paid parking by 4 weeks in September
Aligns with lifeguard season, most concessions, and opening of outdoor pools
Aligns with seasonal public transit service (42 Alma/Spanish Banks) and supports transit options during busiest beach times
Parking at all Spanish Banks lots will still remain free in the off- season from Labor Day through to May long weekend
Free early morning parking (6am - 9am) offered in peak season
Mitigates impacts to regular users fond of early morning beach walks
Provides free morning access for dog walkers at the year round off leash beach at Spanish Banks west
Increase promotion of peak season pass covering Spanish Banks ($87)
Works out to about 80 cents/day (based on 3.5 month peak period)
Provides frequent users considerable savings over regular parking rates ($3.50/hr, $13/day)
Easy Park to begin promotion of peak season pass on April 1, 2018
During this first year of peak season pay parking at Spanish Banks, staff will monitor the effectiveness of these measures, along with overall impacts on both park usage and the surrounding neighbourhood, to help inform recommendations moving forward. Please note that Spanish Banks parking remains free to all in the off season.

When the 2018 fees and charges were approved, staff also noted they would work with transit authorities as well as car and bike share providers to ensure that transportation alternatives would be available to the public. This work is on-going.

More than 40% of the Park Board’s operating budget is funded by fees and charges. Pay parking is a critical source of revenue, providing funding for the maintenance, security, and cleanliness of all of our parks and facilities.

I requested my Jericho Season pass in January. I didn't hear a thing from them. Only after I called EasyPark and left a voicemail did I finally get a reply (several weeks later).

According to EasyPark:

EasyPark has united with Honk Mobile in processing permits for this year.

The seasonal rate is $87.00.
The registration link is: https://www.honkmobile.com/monthly/zones/3692

Please follow the above link to register your vehicle. Please note that you will not be issued a hangar tag as your vehicle licence plate number will be registered into the database when you fill out the online application. The registration process creates a Honk Mobile account. You will be asked to provide your vehicle licence plate number along with payment information. Once this has been inputted – your parking receipt will be emailed to you and YOU ARE READY TO PARK!

Please note that purchases are NON-REFUNDABLE and only one licence plate can be registered per permit.


In the past you were issued a hanger and you could register that hanger to two vehicles. Based on the above change this is no longer the case. Its now only good for one vehicle. If you are someone who frequently visits Jericho/Locarno AND Spanish Banks and, if you alternate between two vehicles, your season pass just went from $87 to $348!
