The Parking 411
Parking at Tsawwassen Mills has not been an issue since the Grand Opening weekend. There are nearly 6,000 parking stalls and they will have traffic control personnel on hand all weekend to help with traffic flow and any potential congestion. Insider tip: Arrive quicker by turning left at the 2nd and 3rd turn off Highway 17 to avoid the bottleneck (pass the 52nd street turn-off), and most parking lot exits are on the north side of the centre.
For more information on the full schedule of events and where to find each activity in the centre, visit TsawwassenMills.com.
