Pay stations were installed at the main entrance of Saville, & on October 1, 2020 they go into effect! If you don’t want a ticket, read closely for the parameters of paid parking areas outlined by the University. GO Sports (Ortona, Grads, & EVCS) have engaged the University to discuss this pilot parking project as we do not agree with the pilot. These discussions are ongoing, & the following letter was submitted to the President of the UofA from GO Sports.

Select areas to be designated paid parking on South Campus
Effective October 1, 2020, paid parking will be implemented in a select area of the Saville Community and Sports Centre to assist in recovering costs associated with parking operations and maintenance. These paid spaces will be clearly signed.
Majority of parking spaces remain free of charge
All accessible parking spaces adjacent to the Saville Community Sports Centre facility remain free of charge 24 hours, 7 days a week, for vehicles with disabled placards. The majority of Lot J, as well as the Foote Field parking lot, remain free. Additional free parking continues to be available evenings and weekends at adjacent Government of Alberta sites.
Maximum hours in effect
Paid parking spaces can only be purchased for a maximum of 4 hours on weekdays to mitigate use of Park & Ride.
No additional traffic is expected on South Campus as a result of these changes.
$2.50/2 hours | $5.00/4 hours
$10.00 all day on weekends and designated tournament days
TAG & TOW is now in effect, please obey parking signs!

Ortona Gymnastics Club recognizes that the parking situation is not ideal for members during busy weekends at the Saville Center. To alleviate parking concerns, we will provide "Walk-in" services on select dates to ensure your child can be dropped off, and walked in safely to Ortona with an OGC member. Once dates are finalized, they will be posted here to ensure you can make use of our service.
We thank you for your understanding, and are pleased to provide a service to benefit our members.
