Rowe Street East Car Park opens to the public

Published on 28 March 2022


The City of Ryde has officially opened the new Rowe Street East Car Park to the public, which will help address parking demand in Eastwood and provide a much-needed boost for the local economy.

The new multi-level short stay car park provides 146 spaces with entry and exit points via Rowe Street, and an exit via Rowe Lane.

The car park also features a range of modern and accessible features including EV charging stations, a passenger lift, number plate recognition car park management system and accessible car spaces.

City of Ryde Mayor, Clr Jordan Lane, said the new Rowe Street East Car Park would support small businesses in Eastwood.

“The new Rowe Street East car park will address chronic parking shortages in Eastwood, which will in turn encourage more people to visit the town centre to shop, dine out or attend any of the hundreds of wonderful businesses located here,” Clr Lane said.

“The City of Ryde is determined to provide as much support to our local businesses as possible, and this new car park is a prime example of how we are going to achieve that.”

“I would like to thank the community for its support with this project and look forward to working with them as we continue to enhance the Eastwood town centre as well as town centres across the City of Ryde.”

The Rowe Street East car park will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

During the day, motorists can enjoy two hours of free parking with incremental rate increases after that point. An evening flat rate of $5 for more than two hours parking applies for vehicles that enter the carpark after 6pm.
