Parking Violations

Place des Arts recognizes that parking is limited which may cause frustration for our clients. To create a parking culture that is more stress-free and, most importantly, ensures the safety of all our clients, teachers and staff, we request your cooperation and adherence to City of Coquitlam parking by-laws.

Drive-through Drop-off Zone
City of Coquitlam by-laws prohibit parking and double parking in the drive-through drop-off zone by the main entrance to Place des Arts on Brunette Avenue. You are welcome to use the drive-through for quick drop-offs and pick-ups; however, please be advised of the following City regulations:

  • The driver must remain in the vehicle in the drive-through drop-off zone;
  • There is no parking or stopping for extended periods in the drive-though drop-off zone. It is to be used for quick drop-offs or pick-ups only;
  • Double parking (i.e. side by side) is strictly prohibited.

East Parking Lot
City of Coquitlam by-laws prohibit parking on the side of the entrance to the east parking lot on top of the yellow painted “no parking” cross hatching.

Violators will be Ticketed
Starting in January 2019, City of Coquitlam by-law officers will regularly monitor the drive-through drop-off zone and the east parking lot, and violators will be ticketed.
