“Our hope is that this is not a barrier for anyone wanting to come to the park,” District of North Vancouver councillor Jordan Back said.

“This is a reasonable pay parking that costs $3 an hour and we do want people to look at coming by transit or cycling.”

The District said the pilot program has already generated half-a-million dollars in revenue.
