Free parking in Waterford city every Friday evening in countdown to Christmas
Parking in Waterford city will be free every Friday evening in the countdown to Christmas.
The extension of the ‘Friday Free from Five’ promotion by Waterford City and County Council and The Port of Waterford was confirmed today.
The initiative, supported by Waterford Business Group, Waterford Chamber, Winterval and the Tidy Towns bid team, is aimed at promoting and supporting city-centre businesses during the busy festive season.
Michael Garland, Chair of Tidy Towns, said: “The feedback from our initial offering was so positive that the council and the Port of Waterford indicated they’d both like to extend the offering to include Friday, December 20. We now have an offering that will support our City Centre businesses and allow shoppers and families, to enjoy #Winteval in the knowledge that they do not have to worry about car parking.
Mr Garland also reminded people that all Waterford Council owned and managed car parking spaces are also free of charge on Sundays.
