As the weather starts to warm, residents will want to get geared up for camping season. This means we start to see more recreation vehicles (RV), including trailers and tent trailers parking in neighbourhoods. It is important to ensure RVs are being parked properly.
You can park RVs on the driveway or in the backyard of your personal residence if space allows. You cannot park an RV so that any part of it hangs over or encroaches on a sidewalk, curb or road.
You can temporarily park an RV on the street directly in front or beside your residence for up to 48 hours. After 48 hours, you have to move the RV off the road for at least 36 consecutive hours before it can be parked there again.
While you park your RV on the street, you can't extend your slideouts as this may impede passing vehicles and pedestrians.
You can briefly position your RV in a lane or alleyway while you are in the process of loading or unloading it. You can't block the passage for other vehicles while it is there, and you have to move it out of the lane or alleyway once you have finished.
If you don't have enough space to park your RV at your home, there are several private RV parking lots in and around Lethbridge.
RV owners who need to dispose of waste after a trip can access the Sani Dump, which is open year-round at the Lethbridge Tourism Visitor Information Centre at 2805 Scenic Drive South.
If you encounter any problems using the Sani Dump, or want to file a complaint about how an RV is parked, please call 311.
