Parking Information

There is limited parking at Rafters Landing. This is public parking operated by the City of Edmonton and we do not have any control over parking availability.

Once you are parked, there will be signage directing you to walk north along a city park path down an inclined paved trail to the boat where there will be an option to take stairs or a paved trail to the boarding area.

During our operational season from mid-May to late September, we sell tickets online, at the ship entrance, or by phone. Events sell out so we encourage you to please pre-purchase your tickets to avoid disappointment.

Use this link for GPS location of the parking lot.

Please ensure you leave enough time to find parking as Rafters Landing is open to the general public and can fill up quickly.

Ideally using another mode of transport (public transportation, car pool, Uber, Bird or Lime, taxi etc) is recommended. Please note that if you are on a second sailing, the parking lot will be very full until our first cruise arrives back at the dock and the passengers disembark. Do not park on any grassy areas as the City of Edmonton will ticket you.

There is additional parking at Henrietta Muir Edwards Park, just east of Rafters Landing near the new LRT bridge. There is also street parking along 96A Street and 98A Ave, north of 98 Ave. Click here for directions.
