Parking information



Parking meters are enforced from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM daily (excluding Sundays and Holidays). Parking Enforcement

in neighbourhoods is undertaken on a complaint basis by the Stratford Police Services. Stratford Police Services should

also be contacted if there is a dangerous parking situation.


We can be contacted at the non-emergency line of 519-271-4141.


The City of Stratford offers over 800 parking spots in the downtown. The majority of the spaces are 3 hours meters, however, the

meters around the outside of the downtown core are 12 hour meters. Presently the parking rate is $0.75 per hour at the meters and

Pay and Display machines.

Blue coloured meters are used to identify accessible parking spaces. Please display your permit and pay the meter when parking in these spots.
