Free Downtown Parking

Temporary free parking is available at 215 parking stalls in downtown Red Deer from July 5 to December 31, 2021.

Drivers will identify which meters offer temporary free parking (up to two hours) by a bag covering the affected meters that states, “FREE PARKING 2 HRS”. Approximately every fifth meter is included on all streets where metered parking is available downtown. View the Downtown Parking Map.
