horse and wagonWe do not have any public parking on the mainstreet. There are a few limited options: The Medical Centre on William Street & the Public Library. A few special needs spots are available right across from The Nest store. Other than that we encourage you to park up the hill in the Community Centre’s overflow lot. No worries about having to walk downtown………….you can catch the horse and wagon ride at no charge! Watch for signs, or ask a volunteer in a reflective vest for directions.
