Access and parking

With up to 40,000 people expected at this year’s Springvale Snow Fest we suggest you make a plan for travelling into Springvale and finding parking.

We recommend parking at the number 8 multi-deck car park (off Balmoral Avenue) which will be FREE for the event.

There are also plenty of spaces outside the Springvale Town Hall, which is a 5 minute walk away.

Springvale train station is also close to the action so perhaps plan to park at another station and catch the train in.

Please note that road closures will take place in Windsor, Buckingham and Balmoral avenues.
