The map below shows the free public and pay parking options in Snug Cove.
New! Free parking next to the General Store
The front section of the former pay parking lot next to the General Store is now leased by the Municipality. You can park there for free up to three hours. Please take notice of the signage that indicates 20 minute General Store spaces.
The parking lot at Bowen Island Trunk Road and Senior Road is closed as of June 8, 2020, to make way for a new housing development.
The back section of the parking lot next to the General Store is reserved for commuters and those who take public transit. Look for the signs indicating commuter parking.
A free parking lot on Miller Road is available to park up to 12 hours, it is a five minute walk to the ferry and three minutes from Snug Cove amenities. The Miller Road lot has direct access to the trails so you can enjoy a few minutes of Bowen nature as you begin or end your commute. Council approved the plan for this new lot on February 14, 2017.
On the West side? Try Park & Ride!
If you don’t want to spend your time looking for parking in the Cove, you can park for free at the Park & Ride at 1421 Adams Road (Satellite Fire Hall) and take the C10 Bluewater-Snug Cove bus to meet the ferry. Use your Compass card to tap on and you can transfer to a bus in Horseshoe Bay on a single fare.
We are currently collaborating with TransLink to have a bus stop number installed at the Park & Ride where you can access TransLink’s Next Bus tool.
