TELUS Spark Member Parking

Membership Parking at TELUS Spark has changed to the Online Parking Permit System as of July 10th, 2018. ParkOnline is no longer used.

TELUS Spark members are entitled to complimentary parking at TELUS Spark, 24 hours a day, year-round, once you have added and activated your licence plate(s) on the Online Parking Permit System.

Note: If you have an existing online Residential Parking Permit, Calgary Zoo or Heritage Park parking services account, you will not need to set your password as long as you are using the same e-mail address as your previous TELUS Spark parking account.
