Campus Parking for Summer Fun Midway – July 23 – August 1

Posted on: Jul 16, 2021

Thunder Athletics will be running a scholarship parking fundraiser during the Edmonton Expo Centre’s Summer Fun Midway from July 23rd until August 1st. 

If you are coming to campus and possess an annual parking pass from Precise Parklink (West) Ltd., simply present your pass to the parking attendants in order to gain access to the parking lot. The only change while the scholarship fundraiser is in effect compared to the rest of the year, is that if you normally have a reserved parking space, it will NOT be valid for this 10-day period. We will be observing ‘first come, first served’ parking procedures so please park in the most convenient space available to you if your regular spot is occupied. If you are teaching a summer session class on campus, please inform your students that they will also need to present their parking passes to the attendants.

Please note that the parking ‘gates’ will open at 12 PM (noon) each day and will be in effect until 8 PM each evening. If you or your students will be coming on campus before that time, then the same parking rules that are in effect the rest of the year will be enforced (i.e. parking enforcement will patrol lots as normal to ensure that all vehicles have either a valid parking pass or an Athletics fundraiser Midway parking pass). If you have students or other visitors that will be on campus during this period, please let them know that they will need to specify to the attendants that they are here on ‘Concordia business’ and that they are not attending the Midway. Please also inform them that they will need to purchase a pass from the Parklink parking kiosks as usual. Having said that, any and all visitors to campus who wish to contribute to Concordia and to Thunder Athletics Scholarships would certainly be encouraged to purchase a Midway parking pass. Such contributions would be most welcome and greatly appreciated!

Just as was done in past years to help ensure that traffic flows more smoothly, all vehicles entering campus after 12 PM (noon) will be directed to the entrance at the south end of 73rd street, adjacent to the southwest corner of the soccer field. All vehicles leaving campus will be directed to exit from the access road that runs between the northwest corner of the soccer field and the Ralph King Athletic Centre. The establishment of this ‘one way’ routing is for everyone’s safety and will also enable us to keep more accurate usage statistics which in turn, will allow us to improve the efficiency of this service in years to come. 

The rates to park for the Midway will be $10 per day per vehicle, $5 less than at the Expo Centre. 

Thank you in advance to everyone for your cooperation. Although it presents a minor inconvenience for 10 days, the money raised is sincerely appreciated by both the student-athletes who receive scholarships.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact Nathaniel MacLellan (Program & Sport Information Coordinator) at Nathaniel.maclellan@concordia.ab.ca 

Thank you again for your patience and support.
