Parking at a premium for Kamloops Blazer games
Kamloops Blazers fans will no longer be able to park directly behind Interior Savings Centre — unless they pony up $249 for the privilege of reserving a spot for the entire season.
Due to what it calls strong demand, the City of Kamloops is expanding its preferred parking program at Interior Savings Centre for all regular-season Blazer hockey games.
The cost for a full season, which includes the first two playoff games, is $249, inclusive of all taxes.
The cost to park in the ISC lot last season, on a game-by-game basis, through the regular season and two playoff games, was $172.
All preferred-parking stalls have been relocated this year from the Heritage House parking lot on Lorne Street to the north lot directly beside ISC.
This means that the ISC north lot will no longer be offered as event parking during Blazer games to the general public.
There will be additional capacity for public use at the Heritage House parking lot, which is about a block west of the arena.
The cost for event parking at Heritage House and other-city-managed parking spaces near ISC will continue to be $4, including taxes.
The total number of ISC preferred-parking stalls available for use is 125, with 42 available for sale.
To order a spot, call 250-828-3707. Remaining parking spaces will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
