Thunder Bay — Marina Park will start charging for parking on June 1, but some c=City Councillors are already questioning the rates.

At a recent council meeting, At-large Councillor Rajni Agarwal expressed concern that the parking pass prices were too low.

A four-hour parking pass will cost $80 for the rest of the year, and a full-day pass will be $140.

Agarwal suggested the rates should be higher. She proposed increasing the all-day pass to $210, making it more expensive than downtown parking, because the marina is a premium location. She worried people would choose the marina pass since it’s cheaper than downtown parking.

Red River Councillor Michael Zussino also suggested limiting the number of passes available.

A report to the council said that “Municipal parking services will monitor the new parking fees at the marina in 2024 and suggest changes if needed.”

Despite interest from the council, Agarwal’s proposal was rejected in a tied vote.
