    Cates Park boat ramp and parking, North Vancouver

    1. The park is open daily 0600 to 2200.
    2. The park allows only 1 overnight parking.
    3. You must buy 2 day tickets ($20 each) from the payment stand which accepts credit cards only.
    4. Place the tickets on your dashboard along with a note to the park ranger stating where you are going and when you will return to the park.
    5. Further questions can be directed to District of North Vancouver 604-990-2311.

    Obviously this doesn’t work for our MacRendezvous

    One can park in residential areas for 72 hours. I would suggest leaving a note on you dashboard with your contact information. It might be a long walk back to the boat. Check out Google map.
