Parking at Scotia Bank Place

by Greely

We are going to a concert at Scotia Bank Place tonight. Last time we got stuck in awful traffic trying to get out of their parking lot. Any tips on which lot is easiest to get out of? Or any area off site that we can park and walk in?

Thanks.

too late now, but no there really is no tips...bus? Not much faster, but less frustrating!

Re: Parking at Scotia Bank Place

I ran the parking facility over the course of 3 years.

Several tips:

Arrive early - To avoid the rush in. Generally speeking, aim to arrive at approximately 5:30pm for a 7pm show or 6pm for a 7:30pm show. This will do two things for you.

1) the obvious, avoiding the craziness on the 417.
2) get you into Lot 4/5. (It's best to come off palladium drive (and turn left on the offramp)

If you can not arrive early and are forced to park in Lot 9. Best thing you can do is park by the exits. Contray to popular beliefs, do NOT park near the bus lot. The attendants there are told to prioritize buses before letting cars go through that exit. The reason is simple, the turn radius on a bus is much wider than any vehicle. (harder to make that turn out of the exit) They do not need cars jammed up on their sides making it harder for them to get out.

If you want to avoid the congestion at the end, I would say. Either a) leave early.
B) exit lot 9 (if u so happen to be there) and stick to the right of the exit. If you go towards Terry Fox, u're in for the long haul. If you exit out through palladium drive (Lot 1/Valet side), u may start further back on the 417(on your east end trip into Orleans), but you will certainly get onto the 417 faster than anyone going down terry fox 3 sets of lights to contend with versus the one (or two depending on which way you turn) you contend with via palladium exit.

Best thing you can do, park in Lot 4/5 if you can, 3 exits. Lot 6 is actually the slowest emptying lot since the installation of the walkway between Lot 6/7. The reason is, cars used to cross the median into Lot 7 (when it emptied out). Can't do it anymore, so don't go to that lot.

Lot 1/Valet is still your best bet.

Secondly, don't yell at the staff, be patient. They are kids, for the most part, and they do try their damndest to get you out, in -40 weather. Keep that in mind.

That's all i can think of really :) Hope it helps.

Travel Tips for Ottawa

Parliament Hill Grounds

by Astrobuck

This was taken behind Parliament Hill....a RCMP was eying me the whole time, so I just took this pic and left. I don't think I was supposed to be there.....but there's nothing to see here, so who knows?

by ken_gildner

During the summer, you must take time to appreciate the waterways in Ottawa. In a city of well over 1 million people, we take for granted the amount of parkspace we have. The Rideau River, the Rideau Canal and the Ottawa River are amongst the nation's most convenient metropolitan recreation areas! The Canadian Museum of Nature is well-located, with close proximity to downtown and the Queensway, and has one of the greatest entertainment and educational values in the region.

by roadrulz

Canada's capital, it's a great city. Parliment buildings are a big tourist attraction. Neat to see all the people protesting something or another outside the Parliment Building, though there is alot of homeless people which is kinda a downer sometimes. This city has a great deal of youth there, between the University and the college. Party all day, party all night. Went on a white water rafting trip there on the Ottawa River which was cool. Other activities available at the camp site were hiking, mountain biking and sitting pool side with other adventurers.

Come to Ottawa for Tulip Festival!

by bkathryn

Every spring millions of tulips bloom all over Ottawa and the Canadian Tulip Festival has activities all along the Rideau Canal and at Dow's Lake. Every year the Dutch people send tulip bulbs to Ottawa to thank Canadians for giving refuge to Princess Juliana and for their help during the liberation of the Netherlands during WW2. In May 2002, this statue was unveiled by Her Royal Highness Princess Margriet, who was born in Ottawa when her mother took refuge here during the War. The statue has a twin near Het Loo Palace in Apeldoorn, Netherlands, which has been there since May 2000.

Walking & cycling in Ottawa

by victorwkf

The best ways to experience the beautiful sights and streets of Ottawa are either walking or cycling in the city. The roads and walkways are well developed and the city is easy to navigate. Furthermore, most of the major attractions are near to each other. The weather in Ottawa is pleasent for walking during summer to autumn, but winter is very cold here.
