Pay parking coming to Quinte Conservation properties

Users of Quinte Conservation’s various parks and boat launches will soon have to pay for parking.

General Manager Terry Murphy says that while conservation areas are free to use, “the cost to maintain them is increasing as aging structures and degrading roadways and parking areas need work”.

As of September 1, it will cost $5 to park at conservation areas and $10 at boat launches.

Payments will be made via the MacKay Pay parking app and all of the revenue generated will be put back into the area that you park in.

If you’re a frequent user of QC’s trails, you can also use the app to buy a $50 annual membership pass.
