Shaw Account – Parking Permit System

To all residents with a Shaw email address,

Cultus Lake Park staff have been busy addressing all of the electronic parking permit questions and concerns. We have discovered that there is a potential issue with all Shaw email account users, as it seems they are defaulting to block reception of emails from our parking software. Park office staff are working quickly to find a permanent solution for this issue.
In the meantime, if you are a resident with a Shaw email, and have not received the communications for the portal, please contact us at 604-858-3334 or email [email protected] so that we can email you your login information.

We appreciate all of your patience and cooperation during the launch!

Parking Lot B is Now Open

Cultus Lake Park is excited to announce that our Parking Lot B near Main Beach, is now open for public use. The parking lot features separated entrance and exit, creating more organization to the flow of vehicles. You will also enjoy viewing the beautiful green spaces that showcase 800 understory plants, many new trees and an incredible 20,000 lbs cedar tree. The large cedar tree born in 1298, lived most of it’s life in Haida Gwaii. It was relocated in 1984 to Pitt Meadows and was recently donated to the Park where it now resides in Parking Lot B.
Pay parking is in effect whenever the parking lot is open for use. Please visit our website at PARKING – Cultus Lake Park for details on when the parking lots are open during each season.
Guests will now have two options on how to pay for their parking; at the meter or scanning a QR code. You can easily find signage around the parking lot that will allow you to skip the wait at the meter, and pay using your cell phone via the QR code.
Cultus Lake Park is self sustaining and receives no funding from Provincial or Federal level. All of the parking fees go towards infrastructure improvements in order to protect and preserve the Park.

Electronic Parking Permit System Launches Today!

To all Residential Leaseholders,

Cultus Lake Park office is thrilled to announce the official launch of our Electronic Parking Permit system.
All residential leaseholders will receive an email from [email protected], which will contain your username and temporary password.

Once you login for the first time, you will be prompted to make a unique password and can change the email address for the account at any time.
