Parking

Who has struggled to find a park leading into Christmas? We've all experienced the frustration that parking can often bring so we've identified some handy insights to make your life easier. Be prepared and find the best places to park before you visit the centre.

Best Entries

2. Level 2 entry off Joyton Smith Crescent: This entry also gives you access to three levels of car parking which reduces congestion and wait time at entry.

If you would like to visit the centre at times less likely to be busy we would recommend coming first thing in the morning between 9am and 11am and later in the afternoons after 3:30pm. For our extended Christmas trading hours please click HERE.

Our quietest days in terms of traffic in centre tend to be Mondays and Tuesdays with weekends, Fridays and some Thursdays (on pay weeks) being our busiest days.

If you are having difficulty finding a park undercover make your way to the rooftop on level 3. This area tends to be the carpark with the lowest occupancy rates and therefore the highest chance of finding a park quickely.
