Cn Tower

I will be driving from Montreal to Niagra Falls on 5/31/2013(Friday). I have a couple of hours and would like to visit the CN Tower(might do the Edgewalk!)

Is there any free or cheap parking within walking distance of the CN Tower? I don't mind doing a 20-minute walk. I will also be spending one night in Niagra Falls(Ontario), and could possibly visit the CN Tower on Saturday June 1st if Friday does not work out.

Cheap/free parking and downtown Toronto do not go together. best bets are the City of Toronto Green P lots. There may be some street parking in the area, but it will be metered. And on a Friday, you will be ticketed and towed if you are parked in a rush hour route. Read the signs carefully.

You're not going to find "cheap" parking anywhere near the CN Tower; that's prime attraction area with CN, Rogers Centre, the ACC, waterfront, Steamwhistle...the list goes on.

Best you might consider doing is parking further uptown (i.e. a Green P lot up near the Yonge Street Subway line) and hop the subway to Union station, taking the walk over to the tower.

FYI, as you can only imagine, Saturday is THE busiest day for the tower. If you really want to do that, then get there earliest in the day that you can. Anytime after about 11:30, the lines get VERY long, and it can extend your time there by as much as 2 hours.

If you go on Friday, park at the Harbourfront lot on Queens Quay West just west of Rees Street, marked as P3 on harbourfrontcentre.com/whoweare/…parking.cfm . It'll cost you up to $12 but is a block from the CN Tower. That seems like so much less hassle than trying to find a cheaper spot further away and taking transit between the two.

Note that Queens Quay is currently one-way, westbound only. It can get very busy on summer weekends so I wouldn't necessarily recommend that lot on the Saturday.

As already posted, try to park in a Green P lot. Don't think you can save money by parking at a parking meter on the street. Most of these, if not all, have a 3 hour limit during the day, and can cost anywhere from $1.50 to $3.50 per hour (depending on location).
