Pay parking returns to Harrison May 15

New 15-minute spots created on Esplanade Avenue

Summer is right around the corner. Tourists will be flocking to a lakeside getaway in Harrison or for a pleasant weekend event in Agassiz or Harrison Mills.

Regardless of what draws people to Agassiz-Harrison, one thing’s for sure – Visitors to Harrison Hot Spring alike will have to handle paid parking once again, effective from Sunday, May 15 to Sep. 15.

The village states pay parking fees help pay for various amenities in the village, including the waterfront, playgrounds and more. Headquartered in Toronto, PRecise ParkLink oversees the paid parking program.
