Parking enhancements coming to Voyageur Park

New angle parking added to accommodate increased traffic in park

Voyageur Park has seen an increase in traffic this summer as Devon residents and visitors alike have flocked to the river to beat the heat. While the Town of Devon celebrates Voyageur Park's success as a local tourism destination, the increased traffic has resulted in a need for additional parking options to be available on site to ensure emergency vehicles have ready access to the park and river.

Starting today (Aug. 20), Town of Devon Parks crews will be installing new signage to restrict parking in areas designated for emergency services or where parking may cause issues for boat launch users.

We will also be adding parking enhancements including:

  • Angle parking options along the internal road past Lot A
  • Overflow parking will be available along one side of Saskatchewan Ave. southbound up the hill
  • For this coming weekend (Aug. 21-23), attendants will be on-site to guide traffic and advise visitors of alternative parking in Devon if the overflow area is full

Devon Community Peace Officers will also be doing regular patrols with a focus on education and awareness on parking safety and enforcement of no parking zones if need be. There is NO PARKING in the loop at the end of the service road past Secret Park or along the bend that goes underneath of the bridge past the boat launch.

These improvements will help us to maximize the number of users who can enjoy Voyageur Park and the surrounding amenities, while ensuring our emergency services can access the river as quickly as possible.

Which parking lot should I be using?

Parking Lot A provides users quick access to the Devon Bike Park as well as the trail network and beach areas along the river. We have added additional angle parking along the service road past secret park to better organize parking in the area on busier days.

Parking Lot B was added in 2018 and provides access to the river and beach area as well as the west end of the trail network. It is reserved for regular vehicle traffic.

The Boat Launch is reserved for vehicles towing boats or other watercraft and has been set up for parking for these vehicles only. Regular traffic must park in Lot A, Lot B or in the overflow along Saskatchewan Ave.
