There is a designated drop-off area on the south side of The Tragically Hip Way, situated between Ontario and King Streets. To accommodate disabled individuals and seniors who rely on this area, we kindly ask able-bodied attendees to consider dropping off near the Centre rather than right at the lobby doors.
The venue follows a dispersed parking model, allowing event-goers to park in existing public and private lots as well as on the street, instead of directly at the Centre itself. For drivers, there are approximately 2,500 parking spaces available within a 10-minute walk (approximately 600 meters) of the Centre. Over 1,500 of these spaces are in municipal lots. Moreover, there are more than 550 on-street parking spaces within 600 meters of the Centre, which are free to use during evening and Sunday events. Please note that parking is not permitted on The Tragically Hip Way between Ontario and King Streets, and on King Street between Place d’Armes and The Tragically Hip Way. Consult The Leon’s Centre special event parking map for details on low and high-capacity parking options.
For those considering alternatives to driving, there is a taxi stop on Queen Street, situated between Wellington and King Streets. Additionally, taxi phones can be found inside Gate 4. Kingston Transit offers a convenient and affordable means of reaching the Leon’s Centre for all our concerts and events.
