Again this year, pay parking at Lake Wilcox Park will be in effect April 1 through September 30.

Richmond Hill residents are invited to get their free parking permit for the park and community centre online at 

Lake Wilcox Park is one of Richmond Hill’s Destination Parks, attracting thousands of visitors from Richmond Hill and beyond for its unique combination of beautiful waterfront scenery and family-friendly amenities. Pay parking helps ensure visitors from outside Richmond Hill contribute to park monitoring and maintenance.

During the spring and summer months, carpooling is strongly encouraged to help manage traffic.

  • Permit parking is in effect seven days a week on Bayview Park Lane, the west end of Dariole Drive and Sandbanks Drive.
