Recreational Vehicles

A Recreational Vehicle (RV) is defined as a vehicle that is designed, constructed and equipped, as a temporary dwelling place, living abode or sleeping place.

Private Property Parking

RV parking is permitted on an approved driveway in the front yard as long as the RV (inclusive of hitch) does not overhang the sidewalk.

To access private property with an RV through a City utility lot, park, or boulevard a Vehicular Access Permit from Parks Operations is required.

Occupying RV's 

A person shall not occupy any recreational vehicle or travel trailer at any time while it is parked on public property (roadway or parking lot).

No occupant or property owner in a residential area shall permit a recreational vehicle to be utilized for living or sleeping accommodation for more than fourteen (14) days a year.

Street Parking of RV's

From April 1 to October 31, an RV registered to a City of Grande Prairie address can be parked on the street in a location directly adjacent to the RV owner's residence for no more than forty-eight (48) consecutive hours. After that time, the RV must be moved to an off-highway location for at least twenty-four (24) consecutive hours before it can be parked on the roadway again.

RV's shall not be parked on the street in any manner as to create an obstruction or prevent the safe passage of vehicles or pedestrians.
