Our OCC parking lot has spaces for up to 29 vehicles.

Please familiarize yourself with the diagram below, and ENTER the property from O’Connor Street. Parking spots at 226 Argyle are NOT available to members. We also want to warn you that the owner of 226 Argyle may install a chain between the properties that would prevent access from our property onto Argyle.

We do recognize that there will be some inconvenience as people get used to not being able to drive through. We appreciate your understanding, and ask members to be considerate about letting cars out of our parking lot.

Despite this limitation, the OCC has run multiple draws every evening for decades. The available parking options outside the club’s lot are what makes this possible. Please be prepared to seek alternative neighbourhood parking when our lot is full.

Neighbourhood parking:

1.     Commercial Parking Lot, on the south side of the club, lowers its rate after business hours to $3 (TBC). The meter accepts large change and credit cards, and the lot is monitored.

2.     Ottawa Police Association parking lot, on south side of Catherine Street, is available, but has restrictions: Mon – Wed after 10pm; Thu – Fri after 5pm; Sat – Sun all day. The gates will be up when the lot is open (and free) to OCC members.

3.     Glashan Intermediate School after 5pm, 28 Arlington Avenue (parking lot entrance off Arlington). We now have access for our curlers to Glashan School after 5pm.

4.     Street Parking is available on most surrounding streets, the closest of which are O’Connor, north of Argyle – free after 5:30pm and weekends, as well as Argyle itself - with metered times.

Note: Parking on the OCC property is reserved for those using the club.  Please do not reduce the limited number of parking spots unless you are actually in the club.
