Car Park 37 pay parking is restricted between 7.00am to 8.00pm and is for Oral Health Centre of WA patients only.  Vehicle must have a valid parking ticket & appointment slip displayed.  

The signage in these areas indicate the maximum length of time a person can park, for example 1P indicates 1 hour, 2P indicates 2 hours. 

At the end of the time limit on the signage, the vehicle must be moved from the carpark.

The ticket vending machines accept credit card and coin payments and only accept 10c, 20c, 50c, $1 and $2 coins.  No change is given.

If you are using the credit card payment option, there will be a minimum charge of 1 hour.

Please note tickets purchased from a vending machine must be displayed face upwards on the dashboard and be clearly visible from outside the vehicle. Failure to observe this requirement is one of the most common reasons why parking infringements are issued.
