Parking at Carleton

Delegates are invited to park their vehicles in Parking Lot P2 or in the Parking Garage located beneath the River Building (our conference venue) – Parking Lot P16.

Parking costs are $3.00 per day.  Carleton operates on a ‘pay and display’ system and you’ll find kiosks in the parking lots.  These machines take major credit cards and cash.

Delegates with large vehicles (motor coaches) will have to park their vehicles in Parking Lot P7.  The cost is the same — $3.00 per day and kiosks are similarly located at this location.

Parking at the Museum of Nature

We have arranged shuttle buses to transport delegates from Carleton to the Museum of Nature.  However, if you would like to take your own vehicle, parking at the Museum of Nature will cost $5.00 but limited free (after 4:30) parking is available on McLeod Street.  An Ottawa map showing the location of the museum is here.
