Pay parking is in effect throughout Cultus Lake Park public areas.
Cultus Lake Park is a self-sustaining community. This means that the park does not receive external funding to provide the required management, maintenance and services that support the community.
Parking fees help to support the maintenance and care of the park. The Board and staff take great pride and effort to ensure that the park is kept clean, safe and well-maintained so that it can be enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.
Paid Parking is in effect year-round in all Cultus Lake Park public parking areas:

- Registration is not required from 6 p.m. – 2 a.m., and parking is free.
Residential Parking Permits (including guests of residents)
As per the Cultus Lake Park Board Parking Bylaw, 1989 Amendment Bylaw No. 1118, 2018, all vehicles parked on Cultus Lake Park property are required to display a valid parking permit. Each lease lot is issued four free permits, with the option to purchase two more permits at the cost of $100 each. These permits are not valid in Lots A, B, C or D or at the Plaza.
If you require a parking permit, please bring appropriate identification so that we will be able to verify that you are the leaseholder authorized to pick up the permits.
NOTE: For tenants or non-leaseholders picking up parking permits, proof of leaseholder permission (with the name of the person picking up permits clearly stated) is required. This can be presented in the form of a letter either:
- In person, at the time of pick-up;
- Via email ([email protected]); or
- Mailed to Cultus Lake Park at:
4165 Columbia Valley Highway
Cultus Lake, BC, V2R 5B5
Parking permits may be picked up at the Cultus Lake Park office during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., excluding statutory holidays.

Good Parking Guidelines
We know that finding parking at Cultus Lake Park can sometimes be challenging and can cause frustration. Please be considerate of others. Park in designated parking areas and pay for your parking.
If you see someone breaking parking rules, they may be visitors, unaware of the parking rules and regulations. If you want to let them know that they aren’t in the right place – please inform them in a respectful and courteous manner and, if you can, help them to understand where they can park.
