BIKE: 12th Ave is a part of the Calgary Cycle Track Network offering safer bike route access to our centre. We have many metal bike parking rails on the sidewalk and next to the driveway in front of the building. If you need more secure parking for your bike during business hours you can ask admin staff to help find a spot in the backyard.
PARKING: Parking downtown can be a challenge. There is paid street parking on 12th Avenue and on nearby streets (no parking on 12th Avenue during rush hour 7:00-8:30 and 15:30-18:00). Street parking is free after 6 pm Monday – Saturday and free all day on Sundays. There is also an accessibility parking spot located directly in front of our building.
